Calder Centre

Calder Centre

The Auckland City Mission opened the doors to its new medical centre, the Calder Centre, on 3 June 2008, named in honour of Jasper Calder, the Auckland City Mission’s first Missioner.

The Calder Centre is a joint initiative between the Auckland Primary Health Organisation (PHO), Auckland District Health Board and Auckland City Mission to bring primary health care services to the most marginalised Aucklanders, many of whom have extremely high and complex health needs. 

The service is set up as a very low cost General Practice, and is closely integrated with the Missions Social Work services.

The centre is open to the general public, and specialises in providing accessible, affordable care to the homeless, families and individuals in crisis, clients with mental health concerns, and those with alcohol and other drug related problems.  Due to barriers such as lack of finances, trust issues, cultural issues, and very chaotic lifestyles many of these clients do not have a regular access to a GP.

All children and teenagers up to the age of 18 are free of charge.

Auckland City Mission is a passionate, dynamic, social service organisation. We strive to foster innovation while being flexible and sustainable. The Mission has a proud history of serving people who have been marginalised through poverty, ill health, addiction and/or trauma.

Auckland City Mission has proved to be a powerful advocate in the past, including: the elderly, beneficiaries, children and people living with HIV and AIDS. The Mission believes that advocacy should be based on research, practical experience of clients and knowledge from staff and other agencies in order to be effective.

Historically, changes in government, social policy and economic environment have created the need for social service organisations in New Zealand. The strategic plan of the Auckland City Mission assumes the need for the organisation to exist in perpetuity and acknowledges the importance of using resources efficiently in order to secure the organisations future.
