Tangata Atumotu Trust Update: August 2018

<>It’s a very exciting time to be at Tangata Atumotu Trust. While our staff have been busy enabling the community to live well, there has been a lot of change within the organisation.

It marks an exciting new era in the history of the Trust. We warmly welcomed our new General Manager Carmen Collie to the Tangata Atumotu Trust family on Friday 27th July.

We are looking forward to building on our reputation as Canterbury’s longest-standing Pasifika provider with Carmen at the helm.

She would like to see the Trust address determinants of health, including working towards the removal of barriers that prevent the Pacific community from achieving high levels of health and wellbeing.

Like Tangata Atumotu Trust on Facebook and stay in the know with more change on the way!

Introducing Carmen Collie - our new general manager

Carmen has worked in public health for the last 25 years. Carmen carved out a niche for herself in alcohol harm reduction during that time, which she had done at a local, regional and national level.

Collie is passionate about Pacific culture, with her own husband and two daughters being Samoan.

“With the support of my aiga Samoa and the wider Pasifika community, I hope I can make a meaningful contribution towards better outcomes for Pasifika here in Canterbury.”

Carmen said the ceremony and support by all those that attended was incredible and unexpected.

Meet the mobile nursing team

Our Mobile Nursing initiative for the Pasifika Community is for people with long-term medical conditions that need home assistance.

As nurse Lisa Suapopo says, a special bond is formed between clients and the mobile nurses. Client Nela Sepuloni describes Lisa as her “oldest daughter”.

Do you like to move to the beat?

Our vibrant matua set the dance floor on fire every Tuesday, as they put their best foot forward in Zumba classes.

Tangata Atumotu Trust Community Health Support Worker Vaili'a Afoa trips across Christchurch to pick up a van-load of keen Zumba-goers.

“It’s the only time some of them are going out,” she says of the elderly participants.

Contact TAT if you’d like to join in the fun or know someone who might also (03 377 2016 or tat[at] with Zumba in the Subject line).

New look radio show

We can’t wait to share our new look radio show, with you all! But we're going to make you wait just a little longer...

We know you’ll love the new talent, who are busy preparing to take over the airwaves, so stay tuned!
