Whakatane sexual harm support services

The Whakatane Service is made up of a team of people who are passionate about helping our community to recover from the impacts of sexual harm and sexual abuse. We cover the Eastern Bay of Plenty region and are able to provide services in Kawerau and Opotiki as well as at our Whakatane office. Our Whakatane house is situated in a quiet part of town offering privacy and ensuring as much as possible that your visit to us is confidential. Maintaining client’s confidentiality is of paramount importance to us.
