Meet our people 

Come in, call, email or live online chat, without the need to make an appointment. Our 40 trained and diverse local interviewers have the information you need at their fingertips. We strive to be friendly, non-judgmental, and give you a range of options to consider.

Our wheelchair accessible office also has hard copy pamphlets about services and groups in Whangarei and your rights in different situations. You are welcome to come in and browse. We give free, confidential (we have a private interview room) and independent advice.

Our Language Connect service means communication in most languages is possible.

Our public lounge is named after long-time local hospital matron Brenda Gardner who was one of the instigators of the bureau in Whangarei. The lounge is well used throughout the working week, every week night and at the weekend, and is where many of our regular volunteer training sessions take place.
