About Us

Anglican Care Waiapu

Caring and Learning for Life

Anglican Care Waiapu is a not for profit organisation, and is registered under the Charitable Trusts Act 2005. We deliver a comprehensive range of services for all ages, throughout the Bay of Plenty, Hawke’s Bay and Eastland regions, including;

  • Early Childhood Education
  • Family Services
  • Youth Mentoring and Programmes
  • Grief Services
  • Day Centres for the Elderly

We have 28 services throughout our sectors, employing over 220 staff. In addition there is a faithful community of approximately 180 volunteers throughout the region who loyally give time each week to help our Communities and parishes.

In 1979 the Waiapu Anglican Social Services Association was set up to support social services work across the diocese of Waiapu. In 1991 the Waiapu Anglican Social Services Trust Board was formed.

Anglican Care (Waiapu) Ltd was formed in 1997 to provide oversight and management for our various residential aged care facilities.

In 2013 the operational activities of our two legal entities: Waiapu Anglican Social Services Trust Board and Anglican Care (Waiapu) Ltd were merged together, enhancing leadership, management and service delivery under the new trading name of Anglican Care Waiapu.

The Vulnerable are our Responsibility

We are passionate about the vulnerable and isolated, both young and old and this is reflected in our comprehensive range of services that address the needs of all ages, as well as the extra mile we go, for example:

  • Our facilities and services are often located in areas of great need.

How we behave, reveals what we really believe

As a faith based organisation, our culture is pivotal in achieving our strategic objectives and goals. What we value therefore becomes critical in developing and maintaining organisational life.

Anglican Care Waiapu Christian values such as love, hope, care and integrity inspire as in our mission and are fundamental to the delivery of our services as well as how we engage with each other and our stakeholders.

In addition to the above Anglican Care Waiapu embraces the value of learning at all levels of organisational life and service delivery.


With your basket and my basket…

The environment, in which we work in, can at times be very challenging and the issues we face are often complex and intensive. We believe to achieve sustainable outcomes that make a real difference in the lives of the individuals and families we work with, we need to work in partnership with others.

Our vision is to see communities thriving throughout Bay of Plenty, Hawkes Bay and Eastland, for this to become a reality, we have identified a number of key objectives including the need for Anglican Care Waiapu to embrace and promote new paradigms of partnership with other community organisations, government agencies, funders and sponsors.

There are a number of ways that individuals, community organisations, government agencies, funders, parishes, church ministries and corporates can partner with us.
