Kaimahi Hauora Programme

We’ve heard that SSPA members want access to mātauranga, practical tools and the space to focus on your holistic hauora, to sustain you in your mahi alongside children, rangatahi, whānau and in your hapori. It’s been a tough few years for everyone, and we know that as the pandemic continues, the challenges of social service mahi are real. Taking care of our own wellbeing could not be more important right now, and SSPA is committed to growing a movement of holistic hauora amongst social services kaimahi throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.

In response, we’re now offering places in SSPA’s first ever Kaimahi Hauora Programme (online). This Programme is open to you regardless of what your role is – as long as you work in social services in our community and are a SSPA member, it’s for you! Thanks to the generosity of Foundation North, Rāta Foundation and Trust Waikato we have regional places in the programme available as follows for SSPA member kaimahi:

  • 40 places for those based in Tamaki Makaurau and Te Tai Tokerau
  • 40 places for those based in Waitaha, Te Tau Ihu, Wharekauri
  • 40 places for those based in Waikato

SSPA is also making available 30 places for SSPA member kaimahi who are based in other regions (outside of those mentioned above).
