WCA hosts the Rangatahi Initiative which works in “hard to reach” whānau (mostly Black Power affiliated) with a focus on improving physical and emotional/mental health outcomes. It operates as a partnership with Wesley offering supportive infrastructure, supervision, and governance, while the Kaimahi have the credibility to work effectively from within. This research documents how the initiative operates and helps clarify what has been learned.
