Motueka Community & Whanau Collective

Where representatives of community groups, services or organisations come together to share information

The Motueka Community Whanau Collective was formed in 1986 to support and promote community organisations operating in the Motueka District. There are currently 90 individuals on the email distribution list ranging from those in Education, Health, Government Departments, and Local MP's.

The Community & Whanau group, as it is usually called, meets once per month with the sole purpose of keeping the Motueka community connected. Those that attend are kept up-to-date with what services or events are available in the community and most meetings include an invited speaker. Representatives attending can then feed relevant information back to their staff or clients.

Membership to Community & Whanau is open to any representative of a community service, organisation or group and attendance at the meeting is all that is required to be a member.

Each person at the meeting provides a brief update and is invited to hand out written information as relevant. You will be required to email your brief update to the meeting co-ordinator if you wish this included in the minutes.

The meeting co-ordinator leads and organises the meetings and any group communication. Requests or suggestions for invited speakers is always welcomed and appreciated. For more information please contact the meeting co-ordinator. The group is supported by Nelson Bays Primary Health and Motueka Community House.

The co-ordinator is Rae Dozell - you can contact her at, or you can contact Motueka Community House at 528 0404.

Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month (except January) from 12 noon to 1pm.
