Awarua Whanau Services
Awarua Whanau Services delivers Kaupapa Maori services that provide for whanau wellbeing by servicing their social, health and educational needs. We work with whanau to achieve a positive and healthy change - Hapai ake to whanau ki nga taumata oranga.
As a charitable trust and a non-government organisation (NGO) we offer services to the community that are accessible to clients from all social and cultural groups within Murihiku, however we are primarily funded to work with Maori. Our target groups are from conception to Kuia and Kaumatua (elderly), and we offer a range of social, health and early childhood education services. The geographical area we cover encompasses all of Southland.

The majority of routine vaccinations can now be administered before, after, or at the same time as your COVID-19 vaccinations. The exception to this is the Zostavax (shingles) vaccine where a 7-day gap before or after receiving the Pfizer COVID-19 is advised. If you have any questions, please discuss with your health provider.
