Te Hauora O Ngāti Rārua Ltd
Takiri mai ra ko te ata i te tonga.
Ka whariki mai te manu kua ao kua awatea
He ngākau aroha e kitea i roto inga to pito o te whare
Ngā uri whaka tupu ki te maunga teitei.
E rupu mai ana e ngā hua papai
He oranga mō te iwi māori

(Nā te Kuia nā Keupe Stafford Fairest)

Our History

Te Hauora o Ngāti Rārua Ltd (THONR) was officially opened in 1996 and operates under the governance of Ngāti Rārua Iwi Trust. THONR was established following extensive consultation involving Māori/Iwi Health representatives from Ngāti Rārua Iwi Trust and other Health Provider Organisations that were committed to working to achieve Māori Health gains and whānau ora. As an organisational structure it would provide accountability for decision-making and ensure resources could be managed in the most efficient way possible. The Iwi Trust continue as the governing body for THONR.

THONR was set up to provide mobile Primary Health Care Services for Māori by Māori, and in 1997, MoH funded a Whānau Ora contract. Today, we are a Māori Health Provider representing a network of services and contracts. THONR applies the concepts of collaborative Health Care to Māori in the greater Marlborough region in direct response to the local needs of Māori.

Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu are pleased to announce Wave Seven is open today. This fund is aimed at investing in innovative whānau-centred ideas throughout the South Island.
