Te KĀika - The VILLAGE 


Whānau Ora - Whānau Oranga


He Korowai Manaaki - trustworthy, transformative villages offering community driven wrap around services.


Ōtākou Health Limited (OHL) is a new charity founded in 2015, with a vision to bring free and affordable health and social services to Dunedin.

Part of this vision is to provide a state of the art facility for existing Health, Social and Education providers to provide innovative and responsive services to the Dunedin community. 

Te Kāika provides for a collaboration of services focused around the needs of Māori, Pacific, Low Income families and other people that experience barriers to primary care. All Te Kāika clinics are open to everyone and responsive to the wider Dunedin community.

Te Kāika currently has two low cost clinics Mataora and Te Kāika Forbury Health Centre both based onsite at 25 College Street, Caversham, Dunedin. Both clinics work alongside Ārai Te Uru Whare Hauora to provide wrap around mobile health and social services.

In partnership with the University of Otago Dental School, Te Kāika has also developed a state of the art Dental Clinic, Niho Taniwha, which provides low cost dental care within a holistic community setting.

Te Kāika is a partnership between Ngāi Tahu (Te Rūnanga o Ōtākou), Ārai Te Uru Whare Hauora and the University of Otago with support from our Pasifika, Low Income and Refugee communities.

Te Kāika acknowledges Te Pūtahitanga o Te Wāipounamu the South Island Whānau Ora Commissioning agency for providing the seeding funding to establish the vision of our communities to deliver our own high quality affordable health and social services.
