Emerge Aotearoa was formed on 1 July 2015 from the merger of Recovery Solutions Group and Richmond New Zealand. Taking the best of our historical practices we have created an organisation led by the needs of people who use our services - tangata whaiora - and their families/whānau and communities. We know that listening to and acting on the advice provided by people with lived experience helps us deliver services that are real and relevant. We are committed to understanding the needs of Māori, our Treaty partners as well as Pasifika people and new settlers.
Emerge Aotearoa's explicit kaupapa and commitment to empower marginalised and disadvantaged communities highlights the diverse friendly approach of the organisation.
Māori succeeding as Māori
Thriving Pacific peoples
Lived Experience and Diversity are privileged
