Walking the talk
Turuki Health Care is proud to be an organisation ‘walking the talk’ in terms of delivering culturally appropriate services.
- We are commited to leadership with cultural integrity, and to serving the people who choose to come to us for support.
- We have strong whakapapa links to multiple iwi and hapū throughout New Zealand.
- We have Māori and Pacific staff (clinical and non-clinical) who are fluent in te reo and a number of Pacific languages.
Our core values
- Truth and honesty in action
To complement our values, we have three Pou Tikanga (pillars reflecting our customs). These Pou comprise a set of principles that support and guide Turuki staff in their work.
- Whānaungatanga. Focuses on the nature and quality of relationships.
- Kotahitanga. Working together in unity and utilising collective skills and attributes to support individuals and their whānau outcomes is a core part of who we are.
- Manaakitanga. Honour, empowerment and respect is key. This includes activity that enhances and/or protects the mana of others – whānau or colleagues; he mana to-te Kupu: te mana-a-kii; and which promotes the active hosting and support of whānau.
