Tairāwhiti Men of the Year Awards 2022

On 11 December, Family Works Tairāwhiti and Tauawhi Men’s Centre celebrated great men at the 2022 Tairāwhiti Men of the Year Awards.

It was an emotional and inspiring event where eight men and Hear4U were recognised for their contributions to the community. Congratulations to each person who was recognised, and to Rory who received the first Tauawhi Youth Award. He was nominated by Family Works Tairāwhiti and Tauawhi Youth Team for his determination to push through challenges.
