Bob Rolleston

I am of Ngaiterangi, Ngaatiranginui, Te whaanau a Apanui, Ngaati Whakaue, Ngaati Awa and Ngaati Porou. I was born at Matahui, Katikati, my mum never quite made it to the Annexe. I grew up as a mokopuna along with others to the Ngaitamawhariua Hapu. With our Koro and Nan along with my older brother and our sister Te Uta, we lived on Matakana Island on a McDonald type farm, at Teuretureture which was on the eastern side of the Island. Past employment has been Farming, sawmilling, storeman, prison officer and Cultural Advisor. My most recent mahi was as kaumaatua of a Kaupapa Māori Mental Health service, until 18 months ago when I retired back to Matakana Island.

After 43 years of a wonderful marriage, my beautiful wife Mere passed away and I have been left to continue caring for our sons, their wives and our five mokopuna.

I have a long-standing relationship with Te Puna Hauora, Auntie Mere and I providing cultural training to the mental health team while they were in the Tauranga Hospital from 2008 and since they devolved to the community in 2010. I have been a Board member since 2009 and share my skills and knowledge when and where I can.


 

Cindy Mokomoko

Managing Director

Te Taha o tōku whaea
Te taha o tōku tīpuna koroua
Ko Whangatautia te maunga
Ko Ngongotaha te maunga
Ko Karirikura te moana
Ko Utuhina te wai
Ko Te Ohaaki te marae
Ko Ngāti Whakaue te Iwi
Ko Te Rarawa te Iwi
Ko Te Arawa te waka

Cindy has spent a large majority of her professional working life working here in Tauranga. She started out as a community worker with Whaioranga Trust, one of the first Marae based health organisations which was set up in 1980. Her strong management and leadership qualities became evident very early and consequently Cindy was asked to co-manage Whaioranga Trust. This dual management approach lasted many years with Cindy transforming the organisation into a more dynamic broader based health and social provider. From Whaioranga Trust, Cindy was employed at the Tauranga Hospital to start up Kaupapa Māori mental health services, developing Child and Adolescent, Adult, Addictions and an acute nursing service over the following 17 years. The Te Puna Hauora Ki Uta Ki Tai services Kaupapa Māori mental health services are now devolved into the community, providing barrier-free access for Māori.

Cindy has an innovative, creative style to her leadership, always thinking ahead and into the future. Some of the outcomes are: Tuakana Teina young Māori leaders programme; training young people under 18 years of age to present at international indigenous conferences; developing training packages for Māori rangatahi with behavioural and social problems; teaching rangatahi about evaluations; and self-development through on-going studies.
