Tamaiti me te Rangatahi

  • About
  • Latest News

The Child and Youth Workstream (CYWS) aims to improve the mental and physical health of children and young people in Canterbury from before birth to the transition to adulthood.

The Workstream has three work groups, which meet separately - First 1000 days, Tamariki (children) and Rangatahi (youth – young adults). There are also forums held for all group members and the wider network to come together. 

The mahi (work) of each group includes:

  • working with families / whānau, the community and other agencies to lead the development of health and social services that achieve equity of health outcomes;
  • enabling the sharing of ideas and information on the health needs of pēpē (babies), tamariki and rangatahi;
  • identifying emerging issues and areas of need that will benefit from networking / transformational change / redesign of how services are provided. 
  • assessing areas of need to ensure the work group focusses resources on progressing complex changes that offer the greatest value in health outcomes, integration of services and /or increased efficiencies.

This workstream is a key point of integration between health, justice, education and social services with membership from across these perspectives.

New website for Te Whiri Ora

17 Jan, 2022 | Return|

The website for Te Whiri Ora (the new pathway that has replaced the Canterbury Children’s Team) is now live. The website includes information about the staff involved in the coordination service and, most importantly, the ability to make a request for support.

Te Whiri Ora has started accepting a small number of referrals and is trialling the new processes which have been developed through a co-design process. There has been a positive response from whānau to the way they have experienced this so far, which is encouraging. 

Four staff have been appointed into the Kaiwhiri/Coordinator positions across our 4 host agencies. They are:

  • Melissa Trilford at Waipuna St John of God (covering North Canterbury as well as Christchurch)
  • Rose Jones at Purapura Whetu, Janine McIvor at Presbyterian Support (covering Ashburton to Christchurch)
  • Kylie Delaney at Barnardos.
