History of Awhi Ora - Supporting Wellbeing
Between October 2015 and June 2016 we worked with three non-government organisations (NGOs) and two local doctor surgeries, one in Glen Innes and one in Panmure, to develop a service that offers walk alongside, community based wellbeing support. This service is called Awhi Ora - Supporting Wellbeing and was designed in partnership (a process called co-design) with members of the Tāmaki community, people who used the service, and people who provided the service (Auckland District Health Board, NGO and GP partners).
The kete we share here captures everything we’ve learned in the prototyping phase. During July and August 2016 the Tāmaki wellbeing team worked collaboratively with ThinkPlace to organise all the knowledge we’d gathered. From this we’ve created a set of tools to help us grow and develop the service further. These include principles for practice - the heart of how the service should run; the key relationships needed to make it work; and some experience journeys – maps of how people experienced the support process and what they achieved.
The service is now being piloted with 13 GP practices and can be accessed through the GPs: East Tamaki Health Care in Mayfair Place, Glen Innes, and Panmure Medical Centre in Queens Rd, Panmure,
