Ways we help

Kōmanawa encompasses our three tamariki focused programmes;

Our Day Programme is an intensive intervention that is social work driven. With recognition that the early years are the most important for pēpi and tamariki, we partner with parents and whānau to build a child-focused support network that promotes safety, stability and nurturance. The primary focus is on strengthening parent-child attachment relationships, creating environments of safety and supporting parents’ to recognise and respond to illness or injury in their child.

A community-based parenting assessment underpinned by Task Centered Practice and Solutions Focused work. It includes hands-on coaching sessions focusing on safety, stability and nurturance.

A workshop for parents/caregivers of children aged 0 – 5 years old that develops awareness of conscious parenting and provides strategies to create calmer, more strength-based households. The workshop runs once a week throughout the school term and welcomes all parents, caregivers and extended whānau of the children. Click here for more information.
