About us

At the heart of your community

There are many ways to access government and community organisations. But sometimes you just want to talk to someone, face to face, in your own community.

That’s exactly what Heartlands offers.

Most of our Heartland Centres are located in rural communities that don’t have easy access to government services. We aim to provide a level of personal service that is generally only available in urban centres.

To find your nearest centre, its hours and the services it offers, go to the Services near you page.

Heartland Services is administered by the Ministry of Social Development.
