Want to thrive in your life? Our Connections & Funding team are here to help you achieve your goals. (This was previously known as Needs Assessment Service Coordination (NASC) and Local Area Coordination).
As part of a Manaaki Tairāwhiti initiative, our Navigators work with whānau to support them through their social care journey and help them overcome barriers to getting support from different agencies. We communicate the experiences of whānau to social sector decision-makers in real-time, highlighting barriers put in place by the system as well as any whānau needs that are not being met. These learnings are used for system change across the Tairāwhiti social care sector to ensure the populations’ needs are met in the most effective way by a cohesive supportive social care network.
