U ki te Whanau Ora – Nurturing the whānau
What Ever It Takes www.whateverittakes.co.nz is a totally unique and innovative kaupapa Māori organisation that supports our clients and whānau affected by serious injury through a values driven practise model. Valuing the dignity and mana of all people is critical to success. This service has derived from personal experiences and applies a culturally focussed approach.
After many years in the sector, this means knowing what works and what doesn’t, working in partnership with whānau and their communities, while understanding how to apply it for the long term.
