Manaaki Trust is a residential based organisation within Taumarunui dedicated to providing level three supported accommodation and means to recovery for those recovering from mental illness. Our focus is on supporting our residents so that they can transition back to living independently in the community.

When residents do leave our residential service, we continue to support them in the community, as they need it.

We do provide respite on a referral basis with the DHB and the CMH Team.

Public Transport

Manaaki Trust provides transport to all clinical appointments, grocery shopping and other appointments as required. There is no local taxi service in town.
