Welcome to Mana Recovery Trust

Mana Recovery values working together, recognising and respecting individual differences while supporting people to make positive changes in their lives. 

Our purpose is to provide opportunities for our trainees to develop their social and work related skills in work based environments that focus on resource recovery, recycling and sustainable living.

OUR MISSION

To provide rehabilitation and vocational training services for people with mental health needs, with a sustainability focus.

OUR VISION

To lead social and employment outcomes for people with mental health needs in the Porirua and Wellington region, through business partnerships which help our environment and support our community.

ABOUT US

Originally known as Mana Community Enterprises, our non-profit organisation based in Porirua, was established in 1996 to provide vocational rehabilitation programmes to people with mental health needs, after the closure of the long-stay wards at Porirua Psychiatric Hospital.

After identifying that there was great difficulty for the people that we support (our trainees) to move beyond our programmes into paid employment, Mana Recovery developed a range of small business initiatives in partnerships with the Porirua City Council and local businesses, focused around sustainability. Through these initiatives, Mana Recovery offer services that assist our trainees to develop socially, gain employment skills and work ethics, building confidence and the opportunity to rehabilitate back into the community.

Today Mana Recovery has extended the concept of community care far beyond the original activity programme. Up to 100 people per day participate in a variety of training programmes and Mana Recovery now employs more than 25 people with mental health needs in full or part time positions within the organisation.

Providing meaningful community services through business initiatives that increase employment opportunities for our trainees and also benefit our environment is a recipe of success for Mana Recovery. With the partnering and support of our local council, businesses and the community, together we are paving the way to a truly sustainable future.

 "Trash Palace's electronic waste recycling operation is a great example of a practical partnership between likeminded organisations which has lead to the re-use of materials both in New Zealand and internationally. It's particularly exciting that this leadership in recycling is happening here in Porirua," Nick Leggett, Mayor of Porirua.

If you have electronic waste, we can tailor make a recycling solution that works for you.
