Pacific Trust Otago (PTO) is a charitable organisation supporting the Otago Pacific community

Pacific Trust Otago (PTO) was formed in 1999 and, in 2002, registered as a charitable organisation to support the Pacific community of Otago. The primary focus of the Trust is to connect with our Otago Pacific community to offer support, activities, information and advice. Services provided include  health, education and social services.

PTO promotes services to Pacific people to access health, education and social services.

The organisation has a governing body of representatives from seven ethnic groups from the Pacific islands.

The organisation is evolving from a small health provider to an organisation where social enterprise and business development within the Pacific community are growing. 

The long term goal is to increase our connections with Pacific communities as well as other agencies and providers in Otago.
