Matea Trust is a private charitable trust, which provides residential support for people with intellectual disabilities, in two homes, one in the town of Orewa, the other on a rural block in Dairy Flat, just north of Albany, both are on a bus route. We provide living conditions as close to family living as possible. The Trust also offers carer support. On the Dairy Flat site, we also provide employment opportunities for men with intellectual disabilities in our firewood business. We also offer work experience opportunities to students preparing to leave school and enter the workforce. Part of our philosophy is to promote our clients into a participating role in the community to enable them to be as independent as possible, to enjoy their rights as New Zealanders and to live as normal a life as possible.
