KAIMAHI / Staf

Kaimahi of Tūhoe Hauora come from various clinical and non-clinical backgrounds.  A diverse range of ages, skills and experiences within the capacity of the organisation significantly improves the ability for Kaimahi to support consumers of the programmes or services delivered.

Where appropriate, services are able to be delivered in either English or Te Reo Māori.  Tūhoe Hauora acknowledges the importance of sustaining the Māori language and promotes its use where ever possible.  At least 50% of the Kaimahi of Tūhoe Hauora are first language speakers of Te Reo Māori.  Kaimahi who are second language learners of Te Reo Māori are encouraged and nurtured by the organisation and their peers.

The majority of Kaimahi whakapapa to Tūhoe, were raised and continue to reside in the communities which are supported by the organisation through programmes and services delivered.  Often mainstream processes, tools or approaches are ineffective and result in limited success.  This can be due to a number of factors, often isolated to the complexity of issues faced by a particular whānau, hapū or hāpori.

As an example of the Kaupapa Māori practices of Tūhoe Hauora, Kaimahi often apply principles of the Mauri Ora programme as a way to support the communities in which we work and in achieving the provision of a Strengths Based holistic approach to service delivery.
