About Us

Te Kahui Atawhai O Te Motu Inc is the national body for lwi and Maori Social Service providers in New Zealand. We provide a range of services to our members located throughout New Zealand.

We offer a collective Maori voice within the Social Services sector representing lwi and Maori Social Services interests at local and national government level.

The idea for a Maori Social Service gained support at a conference held at Wahiao Marae, Rotorua in 2000 and was further endorsed at a National Hui at the Department of Child, Youth and Family’s ‘Future Search’ conference in 2001.
In 2002 a feasibility study was conducted to consider the practicalities of setting up a national body for lwi and Maori social services. Followed by a hui at Turangawaewae marae attended by over 100 representatives and from there Te Kahui Atawhai O Te Motu was born.
