Anga Whakamuri, Anga Whakamua

Equity recognises that people have differing levels of advantage and therefore require different approaches and resources to reach their full potential.

We strive for a thriving Waikato hapori, a community which ensures everyone has access to the same opportunities, one that acknowledges different starting places, and seeks to remove structural and institutional barriers to correct imbalances. A place where all peoples feel they have a voice, can actively participate, and belong.

To achieve our vision for vibrant and resilient communities, we are committed to building a more just and equitable Waikato. A Waikato where Te Tiriti o Waitangi is embraced, and all people have an opportunity to grow, contribute, and thrive.

Join us in embracing diversity and inclusion to help ensure equity for every person in our community.

Our journey begins well before the creation of Trust Waikato in 1988, and even before the establishment of the community saving banks in the 1950’s.
