LIANA POUTU INTERVIEW


Te Atiawa is to sign a memorandum of understanding with the TSB Community Trust committing the two organisations to work together.

Te Atiawa chair Liana Poutu says it's the first such agreement between the trust and a Taranaki iwi.

They have been working together since 2016 on a number of activities including developing programmes to strengthen hapu organisations and improve child and whanau wellbeing.

She says the community trust has always been supportive of Maori activities in the region, but Te Atiawa was now ready to step up the relationship.

"With limited resources pre-settlement you have to prioritise the things you can manage with a volunteer organisation. Post-settlement is a different space. It has taken time but it is all about timing and readiness," Ms Poutu says.
