Kia ora koutou katoa, welcome to the Matua Power page
This page was set up to provide a central hub of information and resources for our Matua community to utilise and enjoy.
The Matua Power is a community programme run by the Porirua Whanau Centre that caters to the needs of 65+ Matua.
The main purpose is to ensure our Matua stay mobile and connected in their community, by implementing a program that promotes health and wellness and improves their quality of life physically, mentally, and socially.
Encouraging our Matua to become and stay active has developed into an important community health priority. While the physical and emotional benefits of exercise are increasingly well-known engagement of our Matua in regular leisure-time physical activity is limited.
The Porirua Whanau Centre have a team of energetic facilitators that deliver a variety of fun engaging activities. Matua Power meets regularly each week and follows a program that includes:
- Good news
- Guest Speaker
- Cognitive Activity
- Physical Activity
