We’re a charitable trust affiliated to the Anglican Church. We have been helping those most in need in the Wellington region for 115 years having been formed in 1904 from St. Peter’s Church. In 1929, an Act of Parliament established The Mission as a separate entity.
Through our four programmes — Mission for Independence, Mission for Youth, Mission for Families, and Mission for Seniors — we provide holistic practical support to a broad range of people. These include struggling families, at-risk youth and vulnerable older people. The assistance we provide includes food parcels, hot meals, advocacy, alternative education, financial mentoring, and social work support. We also operate a residential facility called Kemp Home and Hospital, providing rest home and hospital level support and transition housing.
We are open to anyone who needs assistance, regardless of their religious belief, age, ethnicity or social background. Together, we work to identify and address people’s underlying issues to create positive outcomes.
