Whiti Ora group activities are designed to encourage people to participate in something meaningful. A variety of programmes is offered throughout the year and provide a safe environment and opportunities for participants to build confidence and develop skills to participate in positive community activities. These may lead to attending a community group, studying or working. Our group activities range from those with a physical and/or mental wellbeing emphasis to skill-based groups or those with a social focus.
Activities are delivered across the greater Auckland area and quarterly timetables are developed for the North/West, Central and South Auckland areas. View the latest timetables here.
We welcome ideas from participants for the development of new groups.
