Taha whānau is about who makes us feel like we belong, who we care about and who we share our life with

Whānau is about extended relationships – it's not just our immediate relatives, it's our friends, hoamahi (colleagues), community and the people we care about. Everyone has a place and a role to fulfil within their whānau, and whānau contributes to our individual wellbeing and identity.

Spending time with whānau, doing things for them and getting involved gives us a feeling of purpose, connection and wellbeing. It benefits us and strengthens our whānau. As a core source of strength, support, security and identity, whānau plays a central role in our wellbeing.
