Our Mahi

What We Do

Te Pā provides a range of specialist services that restore and enhance physical, mental, spiritual, and whānau wellbeing that support successful transition back into whānau and the community.

Our strategies are built on the models of Mana Motuhake, Mana Tangata, Mana Ōrite, Mana Whānau and Mana Ūkaipō. Find out how Te Pā can tautoko you or your whānau member on their transition journey.
