Previously called the Whangamatā Community Services Trust, in July 2022 we changed our name to reflect the area we serve.

All our services are confidential and accessible

Eastern Coromandel Community Services Trust is open for referrals from Whangamatā, Whiritoa, Pauanui, Tairua and Hikuai. The process for referral is easy and the services are free.

Free counselling is offered to individuals and groups.

Whānau friendly, children welcome

Level 2 (some knowledge)

One class a week running for 10 weeks

Subject material will cover te reo Māori, plus tikanga practices, a Noho Marae visit (tbc), the importance of knowing your whakapapa (so that you can create and deliver your own pepeha), plus there will be lessons on the history of the whenua and local places of significance.


Local venue TBC


Thursday 20th October 2022


5pm – 7pm

The cost of the lessons is by koha – if you can afford the full cost for the class, then the cost is $15 per lesson (or $150 for the term). If you cannot afford the fee, but still wish to participate then you are welcome – you can choose what you can afford to pay.  We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation.
