New Look for Te Hā Oranga

A new Tohu (brand) for Te Hā Oranga is now being used on the service's buildings in Wellsford, Helensville and Dargaville.

The new signage has a visual connection with the Heru Hapai brand of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Whātua.

The whalebone texture of the logo portrays the significance of Ngāti Whātua heritage, environments and natural resources and the holistic approach of the Iwi to health and wellbeing. The eye featured in both the Heru tohu and that of Te Hā Oranga symbolises visibility and vigilance.

Rūnanga chief executive, Allan Pivac, says the services offered by the Rūnanga and Te Hā Oranga continue to be integrated in a holistic offering.

" We are more and more closely defining 'wellness' from a Ngāti Whātua point of view, and connecting up all aspects that contribute to whole health, physically, mentally and spiritually, and designing our services to match this."

Allan Pivac says a range of initiatives throughout the country including the government's Whanau Ora policy are supporting the work of Iwi such as Ngāti Whātua to achieve better overall outcomes for people.

Te Hā Oranga currently provides a range of health services in Whangarei, Dargaville, Wellsford, Helensville and Auckland.

These services include: Mobile Community Nursing, Home-based support services, Health promotion (kia tupato), Mental Health services, Social services, Alcohol and Drug counselling, and Social work, Breast screening and Hepatitis B education and screening.
