Wairarapa Centre


Our offices are now open to the public, please be aware that there will be safety processes in place at the door. 

Keeping the community safe and well is our top priority, and our services will continue remotely, wherever possible.  

We are mindful that cancer patients are still vulnerable to COVID-19 because of a weakened immune system. To help keep you safe, we invite you to phone ahead if you want to visit any of our offices in the next few weeks.

For information, advice, or to arrange to speak with a counsellor, please contact our Cancer Information Helpline on 0800 CANCER (226 237) or email a nurse on info@cancersoc.org.nz.
