My knowledge of A3K is that in my dealings with it to date, the requests have been met with professionalism, have been undertaken in a timely manner , and have fulfilled the needs of those to whom I have recommended the services of A3Kaitiaki.
The role of the company definitely eases for many of us including Rūnaka of the service provision under Article the Third that can be time consuming but essential in all Treaty--based relationships. Being second place getters in the inaugural Suzanne Spencer Māori Business award speaks volumes to the testimony of the mahi your company undertakes.

Since CareNZ arrived in Te Wai Pounamu 4years ago we have sought guidance and services from A3K on many occasions over that time period. From the beginning, A3K welcomed us to the rohe and provided tautoko to us in many ways, from offering day to day resources through to cultural advice and supervision/training for staff. CareNZ could not have established themselves as effectively in the rohe as they have, without the partnership we have with A3K.
A3 Kaitiaki encapsulates the essence of Kaitiakitanga. Their commitment to the guardianship and stewardship of mana whenua and mana tangata is highly visible in all of the services that they perform.
A3 Kaitiaki have been great partners to work with in addressing the needs and concerns of Maori offenders and their whanau.
A3K have been with us from well before we opened our facility in 2007. They have provided us with excellent support as we try to make a positive difference to the lives of those who we work with as well as our community. They don’t shy away from the hard work and invest significant time and resource into supporting men with complex needs both in prison and upon their release. That support extends to their whanau and through A3K’s commitment and professionalism they have also got a number of other Government Departments and agencies as well as employers on board which is creating some excellent results.
