Tēnā koutou katoa e te whānau,
Our regional leads and steering rōpū members are excited to be back out in the communities, networking and inviting whānau Māori to the upcoming regional hui we have happening throughout Aotearoa.
There has been a huge shift throughout our country, with our people now navigating what their ‘new normal’ looks like post-rāhui. Some facing challenges with the adjustment, others finding it a breeze to merge back into society and reconnect.
For those whānau who require support, conversation or just someone to listen;
Our 0800 POUNAMU phone line remains open from 8:00am – 10:00pm, 7 days a week.
On behalf of us all, we express our thanks and gratitude and are excited to announce that several of our regional spaces have been accepted for funding from the Like Minds, Like Mine community grants that were applied for earlier in the year! Te Kete Pounamu regional spaces are currently beginning to further brainstorm and work towards bringing the proposals into fruition.
