In this past financial year, we have worked intensively with clients throughout our three programmes, Tai Wātea, Tai Tautoko and Tai Ora. It is important to us at Live for More that we are tracking our progress to be able to showcase our wins while also allowing us to continue to improve. We monitor and evaluate not only our outputs but have also established outcomes for each of the programmes that we track. Click below to read more about our demographics, outputs, outcomes and a story of one of our clients over this period. Read further if you want some more information on the outcomes.
Description of Outcomes
The Tai Ora programme is a recruiting programme. As such we track the number of sessions, engagement and attendance at these sessions.
The Tai Wātea programme is our main programme. Alongside sessions, engagement and attendance we have the following four outcomes we are aiming for:
(indicated by graduating)
- Increase in Cultural Identity and Knowledge
(3 indicators: feeling more connected to culture; researching and publicly delivering pepeha and publicly performing haka at graduation)

- Improvement in Overall Mental Health and Wellbeing
(10 indicators from the end of course evaluation: increase in self-belief, confidence, resilience, positive outlook, life satisfaction, motivation for change, peace, reduction in suicidal thoughts, self-harm, anxiety).
The Tai Tautoko programme is for the graduates of Tai Wātea and is aimed at keeping the clients on track. Again we track sessions, engagement and attendance but also a number of outcomes. As this programme is relatively new the outcomes are still being formalised and have only been recorded as of this financial year and so are not available in the most recent outcomes report. However, if you are interested in how these are tracking currently please contact us as we are happy to share this information.
