We have some exciting news to tell you... Mangawhai now has its own Community House!
Te Whai Community Trust has moved to Rose Madsen Cottage (entrance at the Mangawhai Domain) and is collaborating with other groups currently functioning out of the house. We look forward to inviting you in for a cuppa after the old lady gets a well-needed makeover!
We are adding new services and support groups all the time. Please contact us if you are interested in attending an Anxiety Support Group, this will be a new group led by a trained counsellor. We also have a free Budget Clinic and one on one free Counselling sessions available. We currently have one clinic room for private session and our main community rooms.
We are also excited to announce we are working in partnership with Heat & Eat Mangawhai's local meal delivery. If you are aware of someone in need of further assistance or funding for this service, please contact us.
