About us

Here at Ko Wai Au, we empower rangatahi to strive for better futures, we provide services that enable rangatahi to make positive contributions within their kura, whare, rohe and whānau.

We focus to address those rangatahi who require support and encouragement for their social development and well-being as a priority.

We provide our services to the Waipa rohe, targeting 15-24-year-olds who are not engaged in education, training, or employment, also seen to be high risk.

Providing mentorship and advocacy, alleviating barriers for rangatahi. We work in a preventative way by accessing and providing essential services, ensuring saftey planning is completed, ustilising a triage system for all rangatahi entering Ko Wai Au services.
