About Us

The Western Bay of Plenty has a proud social service heart.
At its core, in the Western Bay of Plenty approximately 240 organisations work daily to improve the wellbeing of individuals, families and our society. Many of our fellow New Zealanders struggle with isolation, poverty, mental illness, addiction, housing, food insecurity amongst other issues and each one of the good folks working in the social service sector are dedicated to the task of making life that much easier and better for everyone.

Our People

The team at SociaLink is as diverse as the sector we support; we have differing expertise and a variety of skills, but share a common goal and love for the social services sector and those fortunate enough to work in it.

Uhia te korowai kahui ki te iwi hei tauawhi, hei akiaki ki te ao angitu

Spread the folds of the korowai to all, as a means of support and encouragement in pursuit of success
