Tui Ora provides a range of youth services.

Through its Taranaki Youth Service contract with the Ministry of Social Development it helps 12 to 18-year-olds who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET), or are receiving a Youth Payment (YP) or Young Parent Payment (YPP). Its staff support young people to make better choices by putting together individual action plans, linking them with education or training providers, and running initiatives around budgeting, parenting and training.

Our staff are a multi-disciplinary team of youth workers, social workers, mental health clinicians, kaiāwhina and kaumātua, who work all over Taranaki.  Read about the work of Will Wells here.

The Taiohi Ora Youth Wellness Service is a pilot project working with four schools in Taranaki that began early in 2018. Group programmes as well as one-on-one support is offered depending on the needs of schools and students. Read more about the service here.
