Affinity Services is a stand-alone Charitable Company, owned by the Affinity Services Charitable Trust. We are a community based organisation and have provided mental health services in the Auckland region for over 33 years.
Affinity is committed to making a positive difference to the people and communities we serve. We believe we do this best when we work in partnership with others to recognise the strengths we each bring to the relationship. Our partnership approach is reflected in the nature of the relationships we establish and maintain with service users/tangata whaiora, family/whānau, funders, Clinical Services, other NGO organisations and a rich and varied range of other stakeholders in our community.
We are authorised trainers in the Strengths Model and we work with people using the following recovery tools: Prof. Charles Rapp’s Strengths Model; Prof. Mason Durie’s Te Whare Tapa Whā (Four Cornerstones) Model; and Mary Ellen Copeland’s Wellness Recovery Action Planning (W.R.A.P.).
OUR AIM Our aim is to enable people to achieve their dreams and goals and to contribute to their community.
OUR VISION Our vision is that, together, we will create and sustain healthy communities.
