C.A.R.E. Waitakere Trust started as a dream in the hearts of a group of individuals who longed to see a social service agency in Te Atatu Peninsula.

More information: website

A particular need was identified for a professional counselling service which could offer high quality counselling to anyone in need of support, whether or not they were able to afford to pay the full fee. It was soon evident that there was also a great need for budgeting advice and support in the local community.

The Chapel (at the time Te Atatu Bible Chapel) gifted us cottage owned by them. This was restored and redecorated over the summer by a very committed and excited group of people, and C.A.R.E. House, 64 Waipani Road, Te Atatu Peninsula, opened its doors on 28th February 1999 with a powhiri and opening ceremony attended by the community.


We offer safe and professional counselling for a variety of issues and will help you explore your difficulties and concerns, while developing more satisfying and resourceful ways of living.
