AWHI Healthy Homes Initiative

He kāinga ora, he tīmatanga pai
Healthy homes give tamariki the best start in life

Many illnesses, including acute rheumatic fever and respiratory tract infections, are linked to poorly ventilated, cold, damp and overcrowded homes. These illnesses particularly affect tamariki. Whānau who live in healthy homes are less likely to be exposed to these preventable illnesses.

AWHI is a free initiative that works to improve housing conditions for whānau in South Auckland.

At the heart of the AWHI programme is equipping whānau with the skills, confidence and knowledge to create homes that are healthy, safe, warm and dry. The AWHI team achieves this by connecting whānau with local service and community providers who offer assistance ranging from minor repairs, access to resources like bedding, curtains and heaters to providing advice, support and education.

AWHI makes a difference to the hauora of whānau in South Auckland. The programme has successfully contributed to decreased hospitalisations for respiratory tract illness with whānau themselves reporting less sickness in their homes overall.

“Thank you for our beds, we love them!”

AWHI fact file

Where is AWHI located?

The AWHI programme provides service to whānau in the Counties Manukau District Health Board area. See where the Counties Manukau DHB area is.

How do whānau access the AWHI programme?

Whānau can access AWHI by being referred to us by a hospital, general practice, midwife, supplier (such as Habitat for Humanity), or they can refer themselves by getting in touch directly. Whānau can also refer other whānau.

Do whānau have to be enrolled with a National Hauora Coalition general practice?

No.

What is the eligible age-range for the AWHI programme?

Whānau who live in homes with tamariki and/or rangitahi between the ages of 0-19 are eligible for the AWHI programme. Hapū māmā (pregnant mothers) may also be eligible.

Kia ora e te whānau,

We've got a favour to ask!🤗

Today, in the lead up to Te Rā o Waitangi 2022, NHC has launched the Mana Taurite Pledge: He kupu taurangi mō te mana taurite.

What is the Mana Taurite Pledge❓
The Mana Taurite Pledge is a commitment and a call to action. It calls on individuals and organisations across the motu to commit to honouring te Tiriti o Waitangi and taking transformative action to achieve equity for Māori in Aotearoa.

By taking the Pledge you agree to challenge the status quo, demonstrate authentic partnership and act boldly to address racism and colonialism.

This is not a new kōrero or call to action, and we acknowledge all of the mahi that has happened and continues to happen in this space. Our hope is that the Mana Taurite Pledge will add strength to the call to push for equity and honour Te Tiriti o Waitangi.

Who can take the Mana Taurite Pledge❓
Anyone can take the Pledge. We’re encouraging those who are already at the table to join us in supporting the call, and we’re asking those who aren’t at the table yet to pull up a chair.
We all have a part to play in realising an equitable, Tiriti-based Aotearoa.

⬇To endorse the Mana Taurite Pledge or find out more, head to⬇ www.nhc.maori.nz/pledge
Once you've shown your support, don't forget to share the Pledge with your friends, whānau and colleagues.
