Charles Rask

Whānau Ora Navigator / Healthy Lifestyles Coach / Youth Navigator - NEET
Joined team May 2019

Charlie enjoys meeting different people and being able to help the Community Advance.

"It is a privilege to be working alongside rangatahi and whānau, supporting them to do their best in life" is what Charlie enjoys most about his role as a Whānau Ora Navigator / Healthy Lifestyles Coach and Youth Navigator - NEET at Te Kupenga Hauora - Ahuriri. "Do your BEST and settle for nothing less!", is his message for the whānau he works with.

Outside of mahi Charlie enjoys spending quality time with his wife and two beautiful daughters, who he says are his greatest loves and achievements in life so far. Charlie and his wife lead the Connect Hawkes Bay exercise groups in both Hastings and Napier each week and are ready with a warm, friendly welcome to new participants to their Connect Hawkes Bay classes.
