Settlement Centre Waikato Redevelopment

New Zealand's First Ethnic Community Hub 

A long term goal of HMS Trust has been realised 

The Settlement Centre Waikato redevelopment is almost complete


A goal of HMS Trust since 2012, the redevelopment Centre provide ethnic migrant and former refugee communities of Kirikiriroa, Hamilton access to the services they need to settle successfully in the region, in a modern, fit-for-purpose space which will enable diverse communities to come together.

Realising the Trust’s long-term goal is an exciting time; for the Trust itself, the ethnic, migrant and former refugee communities it serves, and sector agencies, all who will have a Turangawaewae in the City of Kirikiriroa, Hamilton to be proud of.
