Te Iwi O Ngati Kahu Trust has been operating in South Auckland
for over 30 years as an Iwi provider of social work support, advocacy and empowerment for all whanau and tamariki.

Established in the early 1990’s
as the ‘taura here’ to the Runanga A Iwi O Ngati Kahu in tamaki makaurau

our early work has been to advance the social, educational needs of our Iwi and quickly became an Iwi provder to advance the needs of all Iwi requesting supports. Today, we provide advocacy, information and empowerment for whanau experiencing difficulties; as our services continue to ensure whanau involvement, development and growth.
