Porirua Whanau Centre

The Porirua Whanau Centre is one of six Family Social Service Centres in New Zealand.

We are seen as a ‘hub’ of our community, providing education and social service programmes to enhance the health, education and economic wellbeing of our families and children.

We take a holistic approach - we provide support and services for babies, through to children, and on to teenagers and adults – all the way to seniors. If you need some friendly, caring support, no matter what your age, background or your ethnicity, you’ll find it with us!

And if we can’t help you directly, we’ll help you find an agency that can.
