Tu Kotahi Māori Asthma Trust


Tēnei te mihi nui ki ā koutou katoa.

Tu Kotahi Māori Asthma Trust was established in 1992 as a Kaupapa Māori provider of wraparound health and housing support services for whānau in Te Whanganui-ā-Tara. Tu Kotahi currently provides one of the Healthy Homes Initiative programmes (Well Homes) in the wider Whanganui-a-Tara region alongside Sustainability Trust. This programme enables our services to support whānau to live in healthy homes by providing education and practical interventions that support a warm and dry home. We have also been involved with research that has a key focus on the effect of poor housing on the health and wellbeing of whānau alongside He Kainga Oranga (University of Otago, Wellington) over the past 23 years.
