Community Support Groups

The human brain, then, is the most complicated organisation of matter that we know. – Isaac Asimov

Mātai cares for our community mainly through a scientific research component that provides our whānau with access to better equipment and expertise, resulting in earlier diagnosis and earlier treatments.

We understand the importance of a collaborative holistic approach by working with other community groups. For those in need, various support groups are available in Tairāwhiti, and across the country.

See Manaaki Tairāwhiti for details on where you can go in Gisborne for help on a range of issues, including health/mental health, disability, family harm, learning, parenting and more.
