Iride McCloy: concerned about the Waikanae community (Credit Stuff)

The Waikanae Support Hub will offer a “front door” to anyone in the community seeking information or assistance as well as arranging specific purpose appointments. Iride McCloy

Meeting a local need

The Support Hub officially opens its doors at 10.30am on Wednesday 21 February.

Iride is a former Kapiti mayor and more recently has been involved in the travel industry.

She has long been concerned about the lack of information and assistance available in Waikanae and is hopeful that The Waikanae Support Hub will fill the gap.


Assisting people

Achieving our aim will be by providing information and support relating to a range of issues including supporting clients in an advocacy role if within the rules of our organisation.  Iride McCloy

The Hub will have staff who can help and advise folk who may have

  • health problems
  • housing concerns
  • financial worries
  • relationship issues.

Located at 13A Mahara Place, Waikanae, the Hub also has a venue that can be used for workshops and seminars.
