-To provide community support to older people/Kaumätua so that they are aware of the options available to them and are empowered to take action for themselves
-To upskill drivers over 70 years by organising SeniorDrive courses and CarFit events
-To co-ordinate services for victims of elder abuse and neglect and provide advocacy as appropriate.

AVS Service:
AVS is a accredited visiting service to help combat loneliness, and social isolation by providing a visitor to visit a minimum of one hour per week, the visitors are all police checked and trained, they are then matched to a client. This is a free service.
