About

Tokotoko Solutions was born of the desire to provide people with the support and skills needed to navigate their time in school, in the workforce and in life.

Our services help ensure our clients, and the agencies that support them, have all the tools required to reach their goals.

We focus on result based solutions that puts a person at the front and centre of their own journey, while also assisting with pulling together the services and support available through existing channels like schools, agencies, employers and families. 

how we work 

We have changed the way we work to fit in with families i.e. flexible hours, 6 hour days to allow our staff and clients to attend to the important things - families, getting kids to school, and being able to pick up the kids after school.

BUSINESS INCUBATION INITIATIVE

We now encourage our staff to look at starting their own businesses. This has resulted in Tokotoko Solutions incubating and supporting the following new businesses - Watts Moving Ltd, Manaaki Fusion Ltd, Kamo Driving School Ltd, Stronger, Faster and Healthier Northern Wairoa Ltd. It is our intention to assist as many start up businesses as we are able to.

 

WHY TOKOTOKO? 

The Tokotoko is a traditional Maori carved ceremonial walking stick. It is a symbol of authority and wisdom and respect that comes with age. With it it comes the responsibility on the holder to pass this knowledge and values on to the next generation.

At Tokotoko we see our work as passing this knowledge on and providing a template or raid markers for our young people to work from or follow as they make their journey through life.  

 A  tokotoko  is a traditional carved ceremonial walking stick. It is a symbol of authority and status. This walking stick was carved by my father in law Ron de Rooy and depicts the principles that underpin how we do our work.
