Purapura Whetu work alongside Te Hā - Waitaha Smokefree Support to promote smokefree whānau. This service is for anybody who is wanting to become smokefree. If you are pregnant or living with a pregnant person, there is specific support available for you. 

Our Smokefree Practitioner offers free advice, support and Nicotine Replacement Therapy products (patches, gum and lozenges). We also offer advice on other medications and support. 

Our Smokefree Practitioner is trained to help you to make your quit a success. Once you or your whānau register for support, we will contact you to discuss how we can help. We will work with you to set a quit date, and provide ongoing support so you can stay smokefree.

After an initial face-to-face meeting, you can tailor a stop smoking programme that works for you – it could include face-to-face meetings, texting, phone calls, Skype/Zoom, emailing, or attending group sessions. 

Email ssp@pw.maori.nz to get in touch with our Smokefree Practitioner.
