Our Kaupapa

Tiaki Taoka is the Kāi Tahu mandated whānau care service, working with our mokopuna, whānau, hapū and iwi to create a positive environment for all our whānau to thrive in. We believe that the best outcomes for mokopuna Kāi Tahu requiring alternative care to their parents are acquired by an iwi-based whānau care service that centres whānau, hapū and iwi.

We bring with us the stories and expertise of our Kāi Tahu whānau whom have experienced the care system and are ready for change. Trust in us to uphold the mana of whānau through Kāi Tahutaka and the principles of mana mokopuna, whakapapa and whanaukataka.
