The beginning of your journey
We aim to help newcomers and migrants “find their homes” amongst us. We’re here to support you in joining our vibrant, ethnically diverse community. We trust you will find what you need in this website: we intend to continue to evolve and adapt to meet the changing needs of newcomers and migrants, and your input is welcome.
If you need assistance and orientation while settling here – please make contact with us. If you wish to share an understanding of your own and others’ ethnic customs, language, religion, sports and culture – please join us. All are welcome regardless of age, nationality and language.
Our mission is to promote cultural awareness
Our vision is to bring about cultural understanding and togetherness
Our guiding principles – we support Te Tiriti and E Tu Whanau
To promote understanding and preserve ethnic customs, languages, religions, sports and cultures
To support the rights of ethnic individuals and groups to enjoy equal opportunities
To provide a forum for ethnic groups to share experiences, friendships and develop relationships
To provide assistance and orientation for those who are newcomers to the community
To raise consciousness among ethnic groups regarding the special status of Māori as “Tangata Whenua” (people of the land) under Te Tiriti
To build capacity within a sustainable funding model to ensure ongoing provision of our services and activities
To respect and protect our natural environment at all times, in all we do
Our Strategic Plan 2022-2025 is the cornerstone of our organisation and ensures we are all on the same page about our mission, vision, values, guiding principles, objectives – and not forgetting our priorities.
