Ola Monu'ia / Gambling
The Ola Monu'ia / Gambling Service aims to empower positive change within family and community, by addressing social influences that cause addictive behaviours such as gambling misuse amongst our Pasifika communities.
Public Health workers deliver a five week community programme. We are determined and passionate to raise awareness about gambling harm and reduce the negative effects and concerns it brings to our families. The service is provided by South Seas and Raukura Hauora o Tainui.
We also provide support in the following areas:
- Cultural support
- Self-care, housing, budgeting
- Education, employment
- Dealing with both government and non-government agencies e.g. IRD, Police, HNZ, WINZ
What can we do for you?

- We can visit you in your home, or wherever you may feel most comfortable
- We can access information, support groups or courses to meet your specific needs
- With our support and guidance, you decide what changes you would like to make
