Description

Welcome to South Waikato Pacific Islands Community Services Trust (SWPICS). We are a member of Aere Tai, based in Tokoroa, South Waikato.

Established by the local Cook Islands community in 1991, we deliver a range of community health, social and Whānau Ora services to the people of Tokoroa.

We act as a community hub, providing wrap-around support for the full range of needs of our community, including prevention services. We aim to bring services to you directly, when we can.

If we don't offer a service that you need, we can often organise this for you or get you in touch with the right providers. 

COVID-19 vaccinations available through Tokoroa Whare Rongoā Āraimate Community Vaccination Centre. Saturday drive-through at SWPICS 1 Maraetai Road, Tokoroa.
