The North Island Whanau Ora commissioning agency is ready to step into the gap identified by a damning report on Child, Youth and Family.
She says government agencies should resource communities adequately to look after communities.
Whanau Ora shifts the focus from individuals to collectives and from crisis intervention to capability building.
Ms Raukawa-Tait says it works for families because it empowers whanau to transform their own futures by taking control of their lives.
