About Us » Te Omanga Hospice
Te Omanga Hospice is a Charitable Trust that specialises in support and care for those living with a terminal illness - patients, families and close friends.
All the Hospice services are provided free of charge and it has been providing these services to the Hutt Valley community since 1979.
Te Omanga receives 35% of its annual funding needs from the local community (the balance being provided through a contract with the Hutt Valley District Health Board.)
It costs over $6 million every year for the hospice to maintain its existing levels of service - $2.3 million of this is from the community, this poses a tremendous challenge. The Rotary Club of Petone along with many other organisations and individuals contributes in both monetary terms and as collectors.
Te Omanga Hospice is located in beautiful grounds at 136 Woburn Road, Lower Hutt
To quote the Te Omanga website, "It is no exaggeration to say that Te Omanga Hospice could not survive without the kindness, generosity and understanding of individuals and organisations in the community we serve."
