Kōrero awhi

Open communication, being supportive.

Kōrero awhi is about being able to communicate clearly, positively and with compassion. Strong whānau talk about the small, trivial matters as well as the complex, serious issues in life.

Open, supportive communication helps whānau relate and feel connected to each other. It means they are able to really understand one another.

What is kōrero awhi?

“It’s about telling one another that we love each other every day.”

“Sharing a cuppa, and talking about stuff in the moment rather than letting things drag on and build up.”

“Positive kōrero feeds the mind and spirit of our whānau. E Tū – spend time with your whānau and awhi them today!”
