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 Auckland West to be critically literate and confident in the use of English and Te Reo Maori by 2025.

Our Mission:

To develop, promote and deliver accessible, quality literacy services designed to ensure the peoples of Auckland West are critically literate 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.

“I’ve been to other places for learning, but I didn’t feel comfortable, I didn’t fit in. As soon as I walked into Literacy Waitakere I felt welcome, I felt like I belonged.”
