In August 2010, Te Puni Kôkiri selected 25 provider collectives to make innovative and large scale changes to the way they deliver health and social services to whânau. Te Ao Mârama Whânau Ora Collective brings together nine providers in the Mâtaatua region, including the Tûhoe Mâtauranga Trust, to carry out Whânau Ora activities. They are:

Te Ao Hou Trust, Toiora Health Centre, Whakatôhea Mâori Trust Board, Whakaâtu Whanaunga Trust (Opotiki), Ngai Tai Iwi Authority, Torere; the Taneatua Waimana Ruatoki Taiohi Trust; Waikirikiri Social Services, Ruatoki; Te Tapenakara Mô Te Iwi Trust, Waiohau; and The Tûhoe Mâtauranga Trust, Taneatua.

Te Ao Hou Trust was established in 2003 to meet the health needs and aspirations of the people within the rural Eastern Bay of Plenty for resilient, knowledgeable, nurtured,  engaged  whânau; and to  provide a pathway to inform whânau,  by enabling choice, guidance, re-evaluation and  celebration of their journey.
