Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust was born in 1990 out of a recognized need to offer help and support to individuals and to our families. It is a pan-tribal social service, serving Iwi from Nukuhou to Whangaparaoa in the East.
We are a voice for those who cannot express and they are the expression of our voice.
Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust has now been providing health and social services in the Ōpōtiki District for over two decades.
The stability of the organisation in both intent and performance has led to the development of Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust as a trusted brand.
Whakaatu Whanaunga Trust provides outcomes-focused solutions that seek to recognise, acknowledge, reinforce and build on the strengths and capacities already present in whānau and the resources available to them to maximise their potential to improve and sustain their development and improve their quality of life.
We provide information & education around housing. We offer support to those who need help getting in to their first home.
We provide emergency short term housing in Opotiki.
The goal of Youth Services is to help you find the best option for education, training or work-based learning that will help you build your skills and find a positive pathway
