About Us

Healthy Families NZ is a national initiative funded by the Ministry of Health. Healthy Families Waitakere are one of ten teams across Aotearoa involved, led by Sport Waitakere. We have a dedicated workforce to improve people's health in the places where we spend our time - where we live, learn, work and play.

Our team work alongside communities to bring local leaders, champions and key people together to think differently about the causes of poor health. We collaborate with others to make healthy choices easier in the places where we spend our time - early childhood education services, schools, workplaces, sports clubs and more.

We are a member of the Healthy Auckland Together coalition working together to change the policy, infrastructure design and planning of our environment to encourage physical activity and good nutrition. This means looking across the whole system - transport, urban planning, food supply and retail, education and business, so all Aucklanders benefit.
