Get Involved

Who can get involved?

E Tu Whānau emphasises that every one of us has a part to play in creating change, no matter how big or small. We all have a role within our whānau, our hapū, our iwi and our community. This can be the simple, everyday things we do with whānau, it could be supporting hapū activities or it might be organising a community event with an E Tu Whānau focus. It's all about us as Māori taking responsibility to create the change we want.

What can you do right now?

Sign the Charter

Māori have developed the E Tu Whānau Charter of commitment as a call to action to whānau throughout the country to stand together against violence of all forms

By signing, you are challenging yourself and others to think about the issues underlying the Charter. It is a step that anyone can take to encourage debate, action and change. Sign the Charter here.

Here's a good way to start - tell us why you signed the Charter. Put a face to it whānau. Take a selfie and post your comment on Facebook or send it to us by email.

Take action

The ideas for action below are full of suggestions of practical things anyone can do to create positive change.

Actions for whānau

The Charter of Commitment

Or, you can share some of your own ideas and successes on this site.

What support can I get?

You can contact a member of the E Tu Whānau field team to kōrero issues and ideas.

Some resources have been developed as tools to share the messages and spark change.  These include print and audio visual resources: DVDS, posters, pass along cards and brochures.

If you are involved in work or action that strengthens whānau and promotes change you can contact the E Tu Whānau team to discuss how the available resources might best support your work.

Who can use the E Tu Whānau logo?

The E Tu Whānau brand stands for: Taking action to eliminate violence within whānau. It is a symbol for the power and strength of whānau – Te Mana Kaha o te Whānau!

We encourage use of the logo with the understanding that doing so comes with an obligation to uphold the E Tu Whānau values and principles through action.

The brand and logo can be used for specific projects or activities that are about making whānau strong in some way. It can be used in conjunction with your own organisation’s logo, to signal an organisational commitment to the E Tu Whānau values. Already some iwi, hapū and whānau have branded themselves as ‘E Tu’.

Please contact the E Tu Whānau team to discuss use of the E Tu Whānau logo. Contact Us
