Doing what matters
The Wise Group isn’t afraid to tackle the hard issues – it’s about doing what matters and creating fresh possibilities for people, organisations and communities.
Stories of change

A group of young people have been supported by Real, the youth brand of Pathways, to write and develop a song and music video which shares the message that it’s okay to say no, or be told no, to sex.
A new website developed by Le Va called ‘Aunty Dee’ is helping young Pasifika and Māori cope with stressful life experiences by providing them with a step-by-step structured approach to problem solving.
Wild Bamboo’s inaugural lunch and learn event gave local customers the opportunity to have a delicious lunch and then listen to Helen Lockett discuss an important topic of interest, Equally Well.
Le Va has produced a digital resource called B.R.A.V.E. that gives voice to our Pasifika young people, who are making an honest plea for all of us to listen.
A highly skilled and culturally competent workforce is essential for reducing ethnic disparities in access, quality and outcomes in healthcare. Le Va plays an important role in addressing these challenges by managing the Ministry of Health-funded mental health and addiction scholarships and support programme, which is a direct response to meeting these needs.
