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

  • Aroha
  • Truth and honesty in action
  • Pono
  • Tika

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.

  1. Whānaungatanga. Focuses on the nature and quality of relationships.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
