Who We Are

Te Taiwhenua o Heretaunga is a family-focused organisation. We’ve been working with whānau to achieve their goals and general wellbeing for more than 30 years.

We help individuals, whānau and communities by creating holistic, personalised plans of care, support and development.

Our staff include rangatahi coaches, teachers, doctors, community support workers, nurses, psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers.

They’re backed up by strong administration and a progressive management team.

Underpinning it all are our organisational values – which are woven through everything we do.

  • whakamana
  • kotahitanga

We’re based in Hastings, but our workforce of 300 is involved with people and communities along the East Coast from Mahia to Rimutaka, and across to Palmerston North.

We are the mandated political leader of Ngāti Kahungunu ki Heretaunga.

Fourteen Heretaunga Marae are represented by the 15 elected trustees who form our board of Governance
