Emerge Aotearoa

Emerge Aotearoa provides a wide range of community-based mental health, addiction, disability support, offender rehabilitation, wellbeing and housing services nationwide. We believe that everyone is capable of living full and rich lives in their communities of choice. In every aspect of our work we are committed to helping whānau be the best they can be.


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.
