About us


We were formally known as the Pacific Section, and the Pakeha Section alongside the Māori Section of the Nākū Enei Tamariki Incorporated Society, that was established in 1993 in Te Awakairangi (Hutt).


Just short of thirty years later, our new entity NET, was constituted on 1 July 2022.


NET continues to deliver Early Intervention and home visiting services like we have done since 1993 and the Family Start program since 2005, under our previous entity of Nākū Enei Tamariki Incorporated Society.


Our services are culturally responsive, and where appropriate, are strongly influenced by Pacific ethnic-specific models of care - to ensure we are meeting the needs of our community and our parenting programs and support groups are family focused, relational, and strengths based.


The programs we provide are complementary and are designed to support families/whanau/aiga/magafaoa/famili and tamariki/tamaikiiki/tamaiti/children.


Changes to our organisation from 1 July 2022


As of 1 July 2022, our Naku Enei Tamariki Tikanga Māori section (NET Māori) officially moved out from NET to align with the new Māori Health Authority. The transition out of NET is to strengthen NET Māori to meet the required new funding settings under Health New Zealand and the new Māori Health Authority, as a Māori owned and operated provider.


This means we will no longer be Naku Enei Tamariki Incorporated Pacific and Pakeha section, but in the meantime as NET. 

As we transition into a new entity, our approach forward will be carefully planned and measured, to ensure a considered approach and transparency with the pēpi/ pepe/ babies, tamariki/ fanau/ children, and the whānau/āiga/ families we serve, as well as our staff, and funding partners.

Operationally nothing changes. The community will still be provided with the same services. The NET Trust Board and staff will continue to work in the same way to ensure the transition runs as smooth as possible.

This is an exciting time for all of NET, and we look forward to keeping you updated.
