SouthSeas Healthcare will be among other Pacific partner-organisations across regions for the 3rd annual Whānau Ora “Making Magic” Conference scheduled for 21-22 November, to be held at the Holiday Inn Auckland Airport Hotel.

The conference will affirm the next steps in the Whānau Ora journey, with a focus on the last 4 years of commissioning work in helping Pacific families towards healthier living, housing, education, training and financial freedom.

The conference is expected to highlight new innovative ways of working, the experiences so far with the commissioning model, and reflections on the future.

This is an opportunity to hear whānau stories about inspirational journeys, and gain a greater understanding of Whānau Ora work in families and communities.

The conference will culminate in an Awards presentation.

Last year, SouthSeas Whānau Ora Navigator Malie Faalavaau won the Navigator of the Year Award and SouthSeas is hoping for more success this year.

The Awards provide an opportunity to recognise individuals and Pacific Whānau Ora partners who have been outstanding in their services to vulnerable families.

This year’s conference is expected to showcase a range of speakers, practical workshops, and networking opportunities.

SouthSeas has been the initial provider of Pacific Whānau Ora services since the programme was initiated in 2014.

The funding received to deliver the Whānau Ora programme has enabled SouthSeas to expand and widen its social services targeting families who are struggling, by empowering them to overcome their social issues.

This year the Government appointed a panel to review Whānau Ora, looking at how a whānau-centred approach can be applied across government, and particularly in the social sector.

The review will ensure the Whānau Ora service delivery model and commissioning approach is accountable and transparent in the achievement of outcomes for whānau.

The conference will enable providers to share what they have learned, to work out how best to deliver the evidence they have gathered, and to consider lobbying for action.
