He karere! He karere! Healthy Families Far North is in the business of telling stories. Good news stories. Those stories that build on the good will within each of us to act in each other’s best interests to support wellbeing.

We aim to champion and celebrate our people who are living healthy lifestyles, while supporting a vehicle of inspiration for those who need support.

Achieving transformative change requires collaboration; we are all experts in taking controls of our lives and legacy. So, if you have kōrero to add to the movement, karanga mai!
