Wellington Free Ambulance Engagement Survey  

Manaaki Kapiti is working with other health and community providers to improve health services for our whānau, Hapu, Iwi and our wider community.

We have been asked to help organisations understand things from our whānau point of view, so that services can work better for us and our whānau.

The following short survey is designed to get a general understanding of issues for whānau using GP afterhours and the Wellington Emergency Department.

Please tell us a little about yourself and your experiences below; (click the poster below or scan the QR code to enter)

WHAKARONGOTAI PĀ RESTORATION WĀNANGA

Nau mai haere mai e te whānau, please join us for a wananga on the restoration of whakarongotai pā.  

9 – 10 June 2023. 

Wāhi:  Whakarongotai Marae

This is an invitation for a wananga on the Restoration of Whakarongotai Pā (Oranga Marae funding). This will be an opportunity for everyone to come together, kanohi ki te kanohi, and kōrero on the importance of restoring the marae. We will hear about the hītori and the whakapapa of Whakarongotai pā and discuss the best practices for restoring and maintaining the Marae buildings and grounds.

We are still in phase one of the Oranga Marae application process which is consultation and creating a ‘Marae development plan’. We are hoping this final wananga will push us through to phase two which will be the technical feasibility support. We can discuss this further and give more of an update on the process at this wananga.

The marae is booked for whānau to stay the Friday night, there will be kai o te pō and parakuihi Saturday morning before the wananga starts. The wananga will run from 9:15am to about 3pm.  Lunch is available.  An agenda will be sent out soon.

For now, please RSVP and indicate when you will be at the marae and if you’ll bring tamaariki. We hope you can all make it and we are looking forward to it, bring any patai with you! Please follow this link for more details.

FIVE HEALTH & SAFETY SCHOLARSHIPS FOR

ĀTIAWA KI WHAKARONGOTAI MEMBERS ONLY

Safety n Action approached us last year to nominate 5 recipients who would be keen to apply for the Health & Safety Training Scholarship packages in 2023.

They are very invested in improving the health and safety culture of Aotearoa and want to connect with our Iwi members.   

This generous koha is valued at $1,230 per scholarship, that is; a total value of all five scholarships is $6,150.  It is made up of a suite of the following courses – all designed to help people either stand out when applying for roles, assist in their career ascendency and above all keep themselves and those around them safe from harm.  The skills achieved have enormous benefit to wider whanau.

The programmes included in each scholarship are:

  • Fire and Emergency Warden
  • Fire Extinguisher
  • Health & Safety Representative
  • Prevention of Back Injury
  • Hazard & Risk Management

Each scholarship recipient can take up all 5 programmes or just those required.  Should transport to one of our local training centres be a problem, the three online training options may be best suited:

  • Health & Safety Representative
  • Prevention of Back Injury
  • Hazard & Risk Management

These can be completed from any location. Tauira will require access to a computer and the internet.  The training can then be completed whenever they login.

If you are keen to be selected, please contact me at kaiwhakahaere@teatiawakikapiti.co.nz.  For more information :  Click Here
