South Island whānau ora commissioning agency Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu says it now has independent confirmation it is making a real difference.

An evaluation by Ihi Research found that the vast majority of the 29 initiatives funded in 2018 are helping to change lives.

Ihi lead researcher Dr Catherine Savage says more than 3000 individuals participated in the initiatives, and the focus on families will lead to long term, sustainable change.

The Ihi evaluation followed a cost-benefit analysis by Lincoln University’s Agribusiness and Economics Research Unit that found the Te Pūtahitanga-funded He Toki ki te Mahi trades and apprenticeship training scheme generated a $7 return for every $1 invested.

Te Pūtahitanga chief executive Helen Leahy says the organisation it is supporting whānau to become self-reliant and not dependent on the state to make things better.

Te Pūtahitanga is hosting its annual whānau ora symposium in Otautahi this month.
