Activities range from indoor games such as bowls and word games through to visits from other groups such as the ‘Paul Hunter Centre’ for competitive events and outings.

Our monthly outings are varied and we visit all local places of interest. One day it might be going to Dannevirke with a picnic lunch to enjoy eating at the park with a stop off at the Warehouse for a shopping trip or it might be a visit to the Norsewood environs with lunch at the local hotel.

Pakeke Centre has a contract with the Hawkes Bay District Health Board to provide Day Care. This means that for those who have been assessed as requiring day care the service is free. For those who are privately paying the cost per day is $12. The cost covers transport to and from the Centre, activities, outings once a month, morning and afternoon tea and lunch.
While there is a small cost for those who pay privately this contribution is supplemented by the funding we receive from our various funding bodies.
Offers coordinated home support, supported employment for people with disabilities and community participation day-based services
It is a client driven organisation, with 50% of the governing body having a disability or being closely associated to someone that does.
Today, the Disabilities Resource Centre Trust is a Charitable Trust and operates with a General Manager and teams consisting of Home Care Services, Community Services, Advocacy, Information and Administration.
The team environment allows for innovative and progressive ideas to be acted upon in a timely manner. Due to the ever-changing environment of the Health and Disability sector this is essential for any organisation meeting the challenges and opportunity of change.
The services offered by the Disabilities Resource Centre Trust have increased to meet the growing demands expected by a large number of people in the Eastern Bay of Plenty region. The Disabilities Resource Centre Trust today is a prime example of how the social needs and responsibilities of a community can be effectively incorporated into a professional business environment. The social conscience versus the business theory of profit-driven management can co-exist and the Disabilities Resource Centre Trust today is evidence of this.
The Disabilities Resource Centre Trust continues to provide a range of health, well-being and support services catering for people with a huge range and level of disabilities, along with offering fully-equipped conference facilities for use by the entire community. However, foremost in the minds and hearts of those involved with the Disabilities Resource Centre Trust is the people for whom the organisation was established. Our services are tailored to meet the needs and goals of the many hundreds of people with disabilities that we assist every day.
To encourage community connectedness by providing services to volunteer organisations and volunteers
Volunteering Hawkes Bay is an independent non-profit organisation that provides a service to organisations and volunteers. We place individuals into voluntary positions that provide opportunities for work experience, gaining new skills, new ideas and the chance to make a difference in the community.
We provide training in management of volunteers, organise network forums for managers of volunteers and offer advice and consultancy service in the establishment of volunteer programmes. In addition we facilitate corporate volunteering to promote business involvement in the community and foster a more civil society.
