A service to help nurture and support whānau in the development and growth of tamariki and mokopuna whilst ensuring their wellbeing and happiness.

Family Start is an free intensive home visiting programme which is focused on improving tamariki growth and health, learning and relationships, family circumstance, environment and safety.  The programme is available to tamariki aged

Tamariki Ora/Well Child is a free service provided by the Ministry of Health for all tamariki from birth to 5 years. Tamariki Ora supports whānau to protect and improve the health of your tamaiti , so they can grow and develop to their full potential.

  • child growth development

  • family health and wellbeing

  • immunisation information

  • oral health (teeth and gums) checks

  • early childhood education

  • vision (sight) and hearing
