We are here to support people with cancer and their whānau across Wairarapa. We are part of the Wellington Division of the Cancer Society.

The Cancer Society Wairarapa at the Orange light setting

During the orange traffic light setting, the Cancer Society Wairarapa must change how it operates to keep our clients and staff safe. We want you to know we are still here to provide you with support. 

Support services  

We will continue to support people on our Cancer Information Helpline 0800 CANCER (226 237) and at info@cancersoc.org.nz. The Cancer Society office doors will be closed however face-to-face support with the nurses or counsellors will be available by appointment, for those with a vaccine pass. We look forward to hearing from you with any questions, or for any support needs you may have. 

Margaret Stewart House  

Margaret Stewart House will remain open for those who are fully vaccinated and need to travel to Wellington for treatment. Patients can bring one fully vaccinated support person. Unfortunately, we do not allow children to stay at Margaret Stewart House during the orange traffic light setting.  

Our Driving Service 

Our Driving Service will still be available and clients and drivers must be masked. We do not allow clients to bring support people during the orange light setting, and clients must sit in the back seat. We take clients regardless of their vaccination status. 

Who we are

The Wairarapa Centre focus is primarily on growing dedicated support systems; raising awareness in health promotion areas; seeking new initiatives; providing quality information; and networking to improve communication links with other related organisations in the health industry.
