Strategic partnerships allow NSBS to secure ongoing sources of income and strengthen our work in the community to ensure longevity of our services. They align our brand in symbiotic relationships that are relevant, meaningful, and provide financial stability.
Our partnership with Te Puna Hauora has enabled NSBS to deliver financial mentoring services to clients of the Māori health provider. This expanded our brand presence and engagement further in the community, as well as offered financial literacy services and support to more people and whānau in need of financial mentoring.
Te Puna Hauora was established as a Māori Health provider to address health and wellbeing inequality issues within Māori, Pacific Islanders, immigrants, refugees and people with lower socio-economic status.
The organisation is committed to supporting people, children, young persons and their families, to make informed choices to regain their dignity (mana) and to provide medical and financial health by staff and partners, like NSBS, who care and commit their collective knowledge and skills to the kaupapa. The efforts of Te Puna Hauora services are underpinned in Nga Tika, Pono and Aroha.
