Heartlands Centres give people in rural towns access to government services and the opportunity to meet face to face with government agency representatives. The Hokitika and Westport Heartlands Centres are two of 28 Heartland Service Centres in New Zealand and include government and non-government agencies. These include employment services, Inland Revenue, Public Trust, Strengthening Families and many others.

It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services).
