Lifewise Rotorua are one of the finalists for the Matua Raki Workforce Innovation Award!


The Matua Raki Workforce Innovation Awards are given to organisations that meet these criteria:

  • Innovation
  • Impact on the Workforce
  • Transferability

This year, Team Lifewise Rotorua are in the running for this award, having reached the finalists’ stage.

The award will be presented at the Cutting Edge addictions conference — New Zealand’s key addiction treatment gathering — to be held from 7-10 September 2016.

The event provides an excellent opportunity for the addiction sector to get together, to network, and to learn about and embrace innovative thinking and practice. The theme of the conference, Celebrating Transformation, lends itself to highlighting transformative practice for individuals and families, organisations and communities.
