E Tipu E Rea Whānau Services

We are an Auckland-based community organisation providing whānau-based support, resources, and assistance to mātua taiohi.


Our kaupapa is to actively uphold the mana of the young parents and whānau we serve. Through a kaupapa Māori framework, we enable mātua taiohi to achieve whānau ora and connect to their wider whānau, community, and whakapapa.


Our vision is for mātua taiohi and their pēpi to grow, thrive, and find a sense of place within their community.


We provide holistic, tailored and experienced whānau services, supported by a kaupapa Māori framework and delivered by our dedicated kaimahi.
With services that wrap around whānau, we ensure that our new and expectant mātua taiohi have access to the resources and networks that will help them thrive.

Thanks to the commitment and support from our team, partners, donors, and our sponsors, E Tipu E Rea is able to provide much needed support and assistance to over 220 whānau members on average per year.

We welcome you to contact us for more information, and to see how we can help you and or your loved one

What our clients say

I learned a lot about how my baby will grow in the next few months, I was surprised to learn about a baby’s emotions.

I learnt that babies are very needy and also that they can connect with me before they are born, that was pretty cool.
