The Kaupapa Māori team provides an opportunity for WCLC to undertake a community development approach which enables a focused and targeted response to addressing the high unmet legal needs of Māori. This proactive and preventative approach has the potential to halt issues spiralling out of control, or proceeding to court.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lottery Grants Board who provided us with a three year multigrant to employ Tom Harris (Nga Puhi, Te Rarawa, Ngai Tupoto, Te Mahurehure) our inaugural Kaihāpai role (Māori Community Worker). Our Kaihāpai provide a critical link between WaiLaw, and the Māori community.
Please call our office on (09) 835 2130 for more information.
