More about us

E Tipu E Rea Whānau Services was established following the successful implementation of the teen parent project at Auckland Women’s Centre. This project highlighted the need for an independent, Auckland-based teen parent service.

We began as Thrive, officially established in 2011 to support, protect, and empower vulnerable teen parents in West and Central Auckland.

The transition to E Tipu E Rea Whānau Services came about because of the belief in our whānau in upholding the mana and hauora of young Māori – and using a kaupapa Māori to support people of all backgrounds.
