We work with adults (16+ who are not in full time learning) who are NZ Citizens or Residents and who need help with literacy and numeracy, especially reading, writing and spelling. 

Our service is provided at no direct cost to the learner.

Learner-centered tuition is based on the goals of the individual learner.


Our Goal:

For the people of Waitakere to be critically literate and digitally capable and able to pursue a life-long learning pathway for their personal well-being.

Our Mission:

To develop, promote and deliver accessible, quality literacy services designed to ensure the people of Waitakere are critically literate, digitally capable and able to realise their full social, cultural and economic potential.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, dependent on grants and funding, and we welcome your financial support.

“Coming here to Literacy Waitakere has given me meaning to live. Before coming here, I just wanted it to be all over. I had had enough of time. Now I feel free. I feel more independent to do things myself. I now can talk about just about anything and have the confidence to do so. I feel more motivation in my mind. Life is good most of the time.”
