Cultural engagement lead
Are you an authentic communicator, natural relationship builder and engagement specialist with deep work experience and connections within Māori communities? Health Navigator Charitable Trust has an immediate opening for a part-time Cultural Engagement Lead (Māori focus).

This is an exciting opportunity to serve Māori across Tāmaki Makaurau and play an important role in helping the trust collaborate and connect with our community. The Cultural Engagement Lead will gather community input to shape the development of health and hauora resources that will be critical to the success of the psychosocial COVID response across Tāmaki Makaurau and will empower people and communities to significantly improve their own health and wellbeing – ‘by community, for community, with community’.

Are you interested in improving long-term condition management? If so, we'd like you to join us for this exciting online event.  

COVID has had a huge impact on long-term condition management with worsening secondary CVD prevention, cancer screening and diabetes check rates to name a few. We're keen to share stories of innovation, excellence and equity champions to inspire, encourage and share ideas we can apply regionally and locally. Read more.

We also want to highlight national priorities of achieving equity, mental wellbeing, and taking a person and whānau-centred approach to care. If you, or your colleagues are doing some amazing mahi, we want to hear from you. Submit an abstract.
News and upfront
Te Kete Haerenga - Your journey to wellbeing kete 
Health Navigator Charitable Trust is proud to release Te Kete Haerenga – a beautiful, easy to use self-management toolkit.

Designed for and with people living with long-term health conditions (LTCs), the toolkit can be used to describe what is important to the person and their whānau, what they wish to achieve in their lives and how others can best support them in that journey. 

Te Kete Haerenga supports people with LTCs to explore who they are as a person and how their LTC affects their quality of life. But, also, it supports them to have those conversations with care providers.
By using Te Kete Haerenga, patients and providers can identify together what things they can manage now and what they can do over the longer term.

Additional Te Kete Haerenga resources offer information on a range of topics, including sleep, chronic pain, medicines, stress and fatigue. These are designed to empower individuals to make behaviour changes and improve their quality of life, so they are more in control, know when to seek help, if needed, and are more confident to manage safely at home.

Nearly everyone can improve some aspects of their health and wellbeing with the right knowledge, support and skills, which this toolkit will help them learn. The toolkit is the result of extensive consultation and co-design with key stakeholders, including Māori, Pasifika and tangata whaiora. Find out more about Te Kete Haerenga.
