Piringa owns a six-bedroom house on Malfroy Road, known as The Lodge, as well as a house converted to an Office and 2 two-bedroom flats also on Malfroy Road.

We rent another 4 properties in close proximity to the Office also used for accommodation for Tangata Whaiora.

Almost half of our clients live in their own accommodation and staff visit those clients to provide services as required.

Piringa has historically received a high number of Māori Tangata Whaiora and most referrals whakapapa (have family links) to Rotorua or the Taupo and Turangi region.

We operate with a view to the future, a future which encourages hope, self-reliance, community integration and promotes mental health awareness.
