About

OUR HISTORY

Whangamata Community Services Trust (formerly known as 'Te Whare Iwi') started in someone's back yard in the early 1980s. For over 30 years the Trust has worked hard to meet a range of social needs within Whangamata and the surrounding areas of Onemana, Opoutere, Hikuai, Tairua, Pauanui and Whiritoa. 

 It was decided that the Trust should undergo a name change in, 2007 to the Whangamata Community Services Trust. The Trust has grown in the scope of services it provides over time and proudly promotes itself as being a one-stop-shop for meeting community needs.
