Auckland whānau ora collective Te Pae Herenga o Tāmaki is all at sea with its new programme to help people reach for the stars.

Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency chief executive John Tamihere says Ngā Tini Whetū is a collaboration between government departments and the agency.

He says the programme will help whānau set their own goals and pathways in life, which is why it is named after a star constellation like those used by the ancestors to make their way to Aotearoa.

"When navigators look at constellations of stars they don't see stars. They see markers for different islands and different landfalls, and so they're targets. Ngā Tini Whetū is a marvellous opportunity to constantly use kaupapa Māori tooling when we talk about our journeys and how we can support one another by giving more information about how we navigate our way through difficult seas and difficult times," Mr Tamihere says.
