Join the Network

Kia Ākina is a free support network for people with a BMI greater than 30 (to understand more about BMI click here).

Getting started with Kia Ākina is as simple as emailing the Kia Ākina Co-ordinator at  They will contact you to tell you more about Kia Ākina.  You will also receive a free copy of our Kia Ākina booklet.

If you decide to join the Kia Ākina network you will then be asked to complete an online questionnaire. This questionnaire will ask you to provide some details about yourself and will also ask you to indicate which components of Kia Ākina you would like to be involved in.

Within 10 days of completing this form you will be able to access the Kia Ākina resources you have signed up for.  We also strongly encourage you to attend at least a few of the fortnightly meetings. These will give you a chance to really get to know others in the community.
