We are the only local agency of it’s kind covering Whangamata, Tairua, Pauanui, Hikuai, Onemana, Opoutere and Whiritoa. We depend fully on grants, sponsorship and donations to enable us to keep our doors open and to support our local community.

The Trust has grown, and continues to grow, in the scope of services it provides, and it proudly promotes itself as being a one stop shop for meeting community needs.

With the expertise and commitment of our staff and volunteers, the Whangamata Community Services Trust delivers wrap-around care and support specific to local issues including homelessness, acute mental health presentations, poverty, overcrowding, domestic violence and substance abuse.

Requests for our support are varied and often can be emergency or crisis situations.

We aim to continue to provide and improve the social services we offer to our community and surrounding areas as we are the only organisation available for local individuals and whanau. We always endeavour to meet the needs of our community in a caring and confidential manner and by empowering the clients to become self-reliant and resilient.

More about us

We are a one-stop shop proving social work, Whanau support, counselling, budgeting services, medical transport, advocacy, a food bank and youth development to our local community.

Community Vehicle  4 August 2020

Posted by: Whangamata Community Services Trust

Kia Ora

Our current fundraising goal is to raise $15,000 for the purchase of a community vehicle.

We believe that social isolation is an issue for people within our community and our vision is to utilise a new vehicle alongside our wonderful volunteers to ensure all our residents are able to join in the activities and functions that Whangamata has to offer.

We would like to offer trips to community groups, medical and other appointments, shopping and out of town excursions.

Any donations received over the next 12 months will go towards the purchase and subsequent running costs of the vehicle.

We would like to thank the incredible people who believe in our cause and have supported us to date.
