There is NO elevator to SUCCESS. You have to take the STAIRS.

MASSiSS is a school-based community social work service that offers early and responsive social work interventions to young people and their whanau from specific low decile secondary schools, where problems have been identified which put young people’s education, safety or wellbeing at risk.

The advantages of having the setting within schools:

  • makes social work support visible and accessible
  • provides a site where most people are regularly seen
  • there is an existing infrastructure to deliver holistic and coordinated services
  • allows problems to be identified early
