Our Approach

A healthier New Zealand starts in the places where we live, learn, work and play. In healthier environments children learn better, workplaces are more productive, New Zealanders are healthier and happier, and communities are more sustainable.

Healthy Families Waitakere work with local community leaders to uncover the root causes of poor health, and to identify the changes we can bring to make the healthy choice, the easy choice for the people of West Auckland. We collaborate with community leaders to develop initiatives designed by, and reflective of, our community, and informed by strong evidence. Our work predominantly unites us with early childhood education services, marae, schools, workplaces, sports clubs and more.

Working together, we can create a healthier community now and for future generations.
