It outlines our commitment to achieving equity, particularly for Māori, in working with our partners in care in a social governance model and enables individuals, whānau and communities to be healthy at home. Collectively, we will work together to build resilient communities, empowering whānau and individuals to determine their own wellbeing.
The Whanganui Region
Whanganui is widely regarded by its inhabitants as one of the most attractive and historically important cities in Aotearoa, New Zealand's provinces. The city exerts a strong influence over its 65,000 residents and serves as a central hub for the 16,000 people residing in the surrounding districts.
Located on the west coast of Aotearoa, New Zealand's North Island, Whanganui sits at the mouth of the Whanganui River, Aotearoa, New Zealand's third-longest river. For those who enjoy skiing and outdoor activities, the proximity of the picture-perfect, snow-covered, Mt Ruapehu - only a two-hour drive from the city - is an invaluable asset.
