Who We Are

Visit the Community Research Website

This Whānau Ora Research website is managed and maintained by Community Research – Tangata Whenua, Community & Voluntary Sector Research Centre which was established in 2008.   It is a registered charity and an incorporated society.  You can visit the Community Research website for more information.

Within the Whānau Ora Research website we gather research about Whānau Ora, communities and whānau, share it with a broader audience, create a hub for researchers, iwi and community organisations to share their ideas, and advocate for good practice methods in community research.

Community Research operates a Treaty-based model of governance and kaitiakitanga to reflect the partnership established by the Treaty of Waitangi.  Governance-Kaitiaki group members have input via two caucuses – the Tangata Whenua caucus and the Tangata Tiriti caucus.
