Our Story

At Tauawhi, we're dedicated to helping men navigate life's challenges, from relationship difficulties to personal growth. Our experienced team offers tailored programmes and counselling services, ensuring every individual receives the guidance they need.

Over the years, our impact has been profound. Countless men, from diverse backgrounds, have turned their lives around with our support. Testimonials, such as that from Ora Te Hau, a recipient of the Tauawhi Men of the Year Award, highlight our influence: "To everyone at Tauawhi, your efforts profoundly better the lives of men and their whānau."

We're more than just a support centre; we're a sanctuary. At Tauawhi, every man is welcomed, understood, and empowered. As we look to the future, our commitment remains unwavering: to be a beacon of hope, transformation, and community building in Tairāwhiti.

Join our journey and witness the positive change Tauawhi brings to the lives of men and their families in our community.
