Kāinga Ora scoops Māori Crown Relationships Award
The entry focused on the Porirua Housing Partnership with Te Rūnanga O Toa Rangatira, Ministry of Housing and Urban Development and the Ministry of Social Development.
The judging panel said that the partnership was modern and future focused, and embodied the criteria for this year’s award, run by the Public Service Commission, which focused on auahatanga (innovation), whakapūmautanga (durability) and kōwhiringa (opportunities).
Tā Matiu Rei, Chairman and former Executive Director of Te Rūnanga O Toa Rangitira, commented on the fantastic collaboration between themselves and the government agencies involved.
Daniel Soughtton, Manager Business Strategy, said this project reflects what’s possible when we engage early and meaningfully with Māori around a united set of goals for a place and its people.
