Broad kaupapa reflected in Taranaki event promotion

Last Updated: August 2019

August is busy for Tui Ora promotion as the organisation takes part in high-profile regional events.

For the first time it appears at the Taranaki Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase on Wednesday August 7 – then a week later it sets up a stand at the Taranaki Careers and Training Expo August 18 and 19.

This follows its participation in the Mitre 10 Ladies Night on August 1.

The range of events – one in the business community, one about careers, education and training and one on health promotion – reflect its diversity and broad, evolving kaupapa.

While Tui Ora, established in 1998, has built its organisation on health and social services, it is moving into other areas, says Economic Development Relationships Manager, Ngamata Skipper.

“We are looking for new opportunities in community and economic collaboration as we understand – more than ever – that for people to flourish, so must their health, wealth, housing, education and culture.”

She said Tui Ora was firmly part of the landscape, and had built up experience over the last 21 years in the area of health and social services. It has business expertise in ICT, HR, data, finance and business, as well as community and iwi engagement.

“These are all important facets as the iwi voice strengthens. And this expertise is something we want to share with the business community."

A core part of the organisation remains low-cost or free services in areas like supporting youth in training and education, health promotion and mental health and addictions.

“But health and wellbeing is now being more clearly understood as a broad, holistic term and Tui Ora is well placed to be leading that conversation in all its different forms,” she said.

Come and visit Tui Ora at our stands:

Taranaki Business Showcase, Plymouth International Hotel Wednesday August 7 from 5pm-7.30pm.

Taranaki Careers and Training Expo, TSB Stadium August 18 & 19 until 3pm each day.
