Welcome to Tūruki

Tūruki is the Māori health workforce development strategy for the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board, providing scholarships for Māori, career advice and support, Tuakana/Teina internships and other educational initiatives.

The Hawke’s Bay DHB is the largest, progressive employer in Hawke’s Bay. Healthcare is a personally rewarding job, well-paid and a career pathway for life. Hawke’s Bay has a shortage of Māori healthcare workers and needs more to address the health concerns of Māori people living in our region. If you’re wanting a healthcare career in Hawke’s Bay, or want the opportunity to develop your career, take a look at the following opportunities available through Tūruki.

#BREAKING #HOUSING Kāinga Ora will now offer to co-buy healthy homes with families struggling to save deposits. That’s just one of the new housing opportunities our Government announced today, as we get on with the job of ensuring all whānau have a warm, dry, home and a secure future.

🌿 ‘First Home Partner’ sees first home buyers who can service a mortgage but need help raising their deposit, chip in a minimum of 5%, with Kāinga Ora investing up to 25​% of the purchase price or $200,000,​ whichever is lower.

This welcome news is boosted by more innovative ‘first home’ support for Iwi, Māori, as our Housing-related Ministers promised the National Māori Housing Conference back in March.

🌿 $400m - as a second round of funding - has #nowopened through our Progressive Home Ownership Fund’s Provider pathway. The $400m pūtea will help up to 4,000 individuals and whānau buy their own homes - with backing the aspirations of Māori and households otherwise unable to buy key priorities.

🌿 To make the most of this opportunity, Te Au Taketake - which focuses on better housing outcomes for Māori, providing dedicated funding - is continuing to strengthen abilities of Iwi and Māori organisations to establish their own supported home buying options and support whānau Māori into home ownership.

All of these kaupapa not only add to our already extensive plan to tackle the housing crisis at every level, they further prove this Government is committed to working in partnership with Māori to do it. By combining our strengths, we can build more housing pathways that suit the needs of our people. Hoake tonu tātou.

This pic was recently taken at the Maori Housing conference and the korero had there with Māori was hugely progressive and now we are seeing the fruits
