Te Runanga o Ngā Maata Waka in partnership with New Zealand Police, The Ministry of Justice, and The Department of Corrections have come together to form an innovative Marae-based Justice Hub, Tai Aranui.
How we can help
Our team provide support under the following service streams:
- Te Waharoa – Youth at risk of Offending (under 17 years of age)
- Manapou Taiohi – Youth who are Offending (under 17 years of age)
- Manapou Wāhine – Reintegration of Women in Prison (who have children)
- Mauri Tū – Driving Education (under 17 years of age)
We work from a hybrid approach that encompasses Functional Family Therapy, Whānau Ora Support, and Youth Mentoring.
How to apply
To receive services through Tai Aranui you must be referred via: New Zealand Police, The Department of Corrections, or The Community Justice Panel.
