Sam is our Children’s Social Worker, working with children aged four to fourteen and has been with us since 2015.

Sam enjoys helping young people feel happy, confident, safe and free to be themselves in their everyday environments. To achieve this she works alongside whānau, schools, social service agencies and any other support networks already in place for the child.

Sam feels passionate about being a friendly face involved in the community so all children feel safe and confident to access Tūtaki as a service. She offers children’s support one on one or in groups running self-esteem, healthy relationships, anger management and drug and alcohol support.
