About Us

Welcome to Age Concern Rotorua

Age Concern Rotorua is a not-for profit charity and your first port of call for matters relating to the wellbeing of older people in the greater Rotorua region.

We field all sorts of enquiries pertaining to all sorts of matters – and we always do our absolute best to apply our knowledge and experience to the matter at hand and to point people in the right direction.

Our core services are focused around keeping older people connected with the local community.

Accredited Visiting Service – we match clients and trained volunteers with a view to nurturing a friendship/ hobby or interest companionship

Out and Abouters – we take weekly trips around Rotorua and further afield visiting natural attractions, cinemas, eateries and partaking in activities and events with a view to creating friendships and combating social isolation

Shopping Service – we match clients with trained volunteers to provide transport and companionship for weekly/fortnightly grocery shopping with a view of maintaining autonomy and independence

Total Mobility – we are agents for Total Mobility – a subsidised scheme that provides half price taxi fares for those with permanent mobility impairment.

We can also help arrange a ‘free plus one travel companion ’ for your Bee Bus card.

You are welcome to wander into our office and have a chat about anything concerning you, a family member or friend - or give us a call on 07 347-1539
