The Central Pacific Collective was established in 2014 as a Charitable Trust to support Pacific health service providers in the Wellington region.

Up until 2020 the main source of funding was from the Pacific Provider Development Fund (“PPDF”), operated by the Ministry of Health, with other funding received from the Capital & Coast District Health Board and the Hutt Valley District Health Board.

The Central Pacific Collective has repositioned itself to be a community-led regional delivery model that targets, coordinates, and focusses efforts to improve Pasefika wellbeing in the Wellington region.

We will do this by focusing, supporting, and leveraging the skills and knowledge of its partners to;

  • manage service agreements
  • manage projects and work programmes
  • deliver back-office support
  • provide advocacy services
  • provide Strategic Connections
  • promote Pacific wellbeing in the Wellington Region
