Ko Ngāti Hine e ngunguru nei

Our vision statement gives Ngāti Health Trust the ability to advocate for

whanau and community, whilst being accountable to those we serve.


The Ngāti Hine Health Trust has its origins in the Motatau Marae Komiti which, in 1987, formed a health sub-committee to address health needs of the Motatau community.


From 1990 to 1992 the Marae Komiti obtained funding from the Health Research Council to train Kaiāwhina and carry out a Ngāti Hine household health status survey.


A second allocation of funding from Te Hotu Manawa Māori was secured to carry out a Rheumatic Fever prevention project.


Together the trained Kaiāwhina, the household survey and the Rheumatic Fever project provided the basis of submissions to the Regional Health Authority to establish Hauora Ngāti Hine as it was then, as a contracted service provider.

It was 28 April 1992 when the Ngāti Hine Health Trust was officially formed. A special relationship with the Regional Health Authority, evidenced by a Treaty-based Memorandum of Understanding was signed in 1994, as a precursor to the Trust’s entry into service delivery.


The Trust’s first service contract was for provision of Mobile Community Nursing Services.


Having established itself in the delivery of a comprehensive range of mobile nursing, residential and community health services, and through the recognition of the underlying social determinants of health, over the following 28 years the Trust has expanded to encompass social, disability, education, housing, corrections, justice and media services including service contracts with:
