Provide health and wellness focused services & facilities, which meet the needs of Colville and Northern Coromandel
History: The Colville Community Health Trust (CCHT) is a registered Charitable Trust and was established after the Colville Health Clinic because the clinic does not have sufficient funds to run a service in the Northern Coromandel District without the infrastructure provided by CCHT. The area the clinic covers is between Port Charles to the north, Papa Aroha to the west and Tuateawa to the east. Although the Clinic is funded by the WDHB via the PHO for service provision, there is a significant shortfall.
CCHT aims to provide the infrastructure to enable local provision of as many social services as possible. The trust continues to work towards enabling local access to essential social services and growing the resources we have available locally so that community members in need can maintain their health and wellness.
We have been saving and are constantly looking for new ideas and ways to raise funds for a purpose built community facility that will house:
Colville Rural Nursing, Colville Community Health Centre, St John First Response Team, Colville Natural Health Practitioner, Colville Social Service Collective and rooms for visiting Counsellors, Physiotherapist, Osteopaths.
To provide health and wellness focused services and facilities, which meet the needs of Colville; that are holistic, accessible, people friendly, sustainable and progressive.
Our work is underpinned by a commitment to:
- BE RESPONSIVE
- BE CARING
- BE HOLISTIC
- ACT WITH INTEGRITY
A strong supportive community
To provide a shared space for the people of northern Coromandel to access health and community services.
OUR STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
