Explore Wellbeing

We help people to live their best life.

Everyone has good days and not so good days. But for some, good days are harder to come by.

There’s never one reason – everyone experiences the world differently.

Explore works in partnership with people we support to promote the best possible chance of enhanced outcomes for each rangatahi and their whānau.

Getting it right for Māori

Nāku te rourou nāu te rourou ka ora ai te iwi – With your basket and my basket, we will sustain everyone

We want to understand who you are, what you value and how we can work best with you and your whānau. We want to partner with you to bring about the positive change that you want to achieve.  Awhi Te Tangata is one of our guiding documents that underpins everything we do at Explore. Awhi te Tangata is about supporting people and comprises three key values:

  • Aroha – love and care
  • Tūmanako – hope and aspiration
  • Whakapono – commitment and trust

Our framework for engaging with Māori is Mana Manaaki:

Our specialists are supported to grow their knowledge, confidence and skills in working with Māori and celebrating the special position held by Māori as Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa and treaty partners under Te Tiriti o Waitangi.  We provide our Explore specialists with training, cultural supports, noho marae opportunities, encouragement and expectation to grow their cultural competence.

We look forward to working with you and bringing our kete to add to yours.
