Rangitahi & Whānau

Central Plateau REAP is committed to supporting rangatahi and whānau achieve their aspirations.

We work closely with schools, Oranga Tamariki and other service agencies to ensure that all the young people of our district have the opportunity to thrive.

Rangitahi Mentoring

Our team of mentors provide one on one support to rangatahi aged 11 to 16. Entry into this programme is by way of referral from Oranga Tamariki.

Transition to Adulthood

We support young people aged 17 to 24 who are transitioning out of Oranga Tamariki care. Entry into this programme is by way of referral from Oranga Tamariki.

Male Mentoring

The objective of the Male Mentor Programme is to walk alongside men and provide support, coaching and training in new skills to address the needs of the whānau, assist men to set goals and to be the best dad that they can be.

Central Plateau REAP Male Mentor and Coordinator Brian Griffin uses numerous activities and processes to work effectively with males who need a helping hand with their well-being. These activities help to create a space where trust and respect are built.

Some key outcomes from the Male Mentor Programme include building whānau relationships (father/son), restoring mana (men believing and respecting themselves), being more aware of the value of whānau, and learning to plan and set goals.

Strengthening Families

Strengthening Families Taupō and Tūrangi provides a way for families to get co-ordinated access to services.

This process is supported by three contracted lead agencies: Central Plateau REAP , Family Works Northern and Family Financial Solutions. These lead agents advocate for the family and compile an action plan from the collaborative meetings to help families reach their potential.
Strengthening Families believes that networking among the services in the community is paramount for positive outcomes for families. We run community provider meetings at Central Plateau REAP quarterly to provide updates on the services and programmes available.
