All of our people came to TTW with the desire to help our community.

We have a strong Board of Trustees who provide direction and guidance as we steer the Te Tuinga Waka in a positive direction for the community. Our Tangata Moemoea breathes life to the dream, backed by talented staff who are passionate about their mahi and the impact they make on the people who entrust us with their issues.
