Kaitoko Whānau (Family Support) 

Kaitoko Whānau, meaning “Family Support”, are community-based workers in Māori communities. The Kaitoko Whānau focus on improving service delivery for families, rather than individuals, and foster positive development of whānau whānui.


Kaitoko Whānau work alongside families experiencing challenging times, and assist them to connect with government agencies, local councils and other social service providers ensuring whānau receive all of the assistance available to them. In addition, Kaitoko Whānau liaise with community groups and Māori Wardens to promote and encourage a wider network of support for whānau.


This Whānau Support Service is sponsored by Te Puni Kōkiri.
