Kokiri Marae Hauora Services

Essential community social services have been offered from Kokiri Marae from early in its inception until the present day. The earliest services offered targeted those most at risk within the Māori community using tikanga Māori such as manaakitanga, whānaungatanga and whakapapa.

Teresea Olsen who is the current Manager of the Kokiri Marae Hauora, formalised this service in 1980 by offering support, counselling and advocacy for and on behalf of Māori individuals and their whānau. This service has grown over the years to a point where Kokiri Marae now offers a wide range of social services to at risk Māori and their whānau.
