Kia ora my name is Phil Paikea, I am happily married to my wife of 44 years and have 6 daughters and 1 son.

Currently i have a job with SafeMan SafeFamily which allows me to do my work as a mentor, Navigator, and Family Violence Advocate. I am based in my community of Ruakaka where i manage our men’s Centre Te Whare Kowhai and facilitate men’s groups.
