Data Relevant to Māori

This information is useful to help us to plan and provide better services to our whanau.

In order to be able to effectively engage and work with Māori, providers of services are encouraged to build their knowledge of Te Ao Māori or the worldview of Māori.  This includes understanding  the data that has been collected over the years.

He aha te mea nui o te ao
What is the most important thing in the world?


 He tangata, he tangata, he tangata
It is the people, it is the people, it is the people

Ratonga Hapori – Community Services

Whakahou Taketake Vital Update – Tauranga:  Each year the Community Development Team produces a report to showcase the various projects, outcomes and outputs the team has achieved as well as celebrating the successes of various community groups and the amazing work they are doing. Their annual reports reflect that together, as a community, we will strive to achieve wellbeing for all.

There are a variety of reports and resources on this page, one of which is the ‘Vital Update – Tauranga’ which is a research project that focuses on the geographic communities in Tauranga: who makes them up, and what their needs, wants and aspirations are for their neighbourhoods and the wider city.
