Welcome to Transform Aotearoa

Transform Aotearoa has people at its very heart.

We are dedicated to building healthy whānau and helping people take the next step in their personal journey towards wholeness, by providing practical tools and support in provincial New Zealand. 

In seeking to walk alongside and foster healthy and whole communities across all generations, we are helping provincial communities in our nation to flourish. Through our personal development programs, up-skilling opportunities and group support, we are calling out the greatness in each one, and in turn, seeing hundreds of lives and families impacted for good. 

There is a place for everyone at Transform Aotearoa – come and join us, we’d love to meet you!

Resilient by Design

On my way to work each day I pass a billboard advertising a company and the image is a beautifully cut solitaire diamond accompanied by the words “Resilient by Design”.  Personally, I think this is a testament of the people we see each day.  Many come as rough stones discoloured and rough by life’s circumstances.  After a little self-discovery, a journey of forgiveness and letting go, is like the precision of a diamond cutting tool with each stroke, rough edges and discolouration disappear to reveal a perfect cut masterpiece within.  Every story is real and every person a soul who is looking for a brighter tomorrow. 

These Heart-Warming stories are the tales of lives that are indeed Resilient by Design.
