Happy New Year! We hope you had a restful break over the Christmas period. The Momenta team are feeling refreshed after our summer holidays and have jumped back in with a busy start to 2021.

We are blessed in New Zealand to be enjoying our glorious summer to the full while other parts of the world are still under enormous pressure and struggling against COVID-19. The events of the past few weeks of having several community cases, however, come as a sharp reminder that we must not be complacent and remain vigilant. We have reviewed our 2020 COVID-19 service response and our team is ready to immediately respond and support our clients in the (what we hope is, unlikely,) event of a future lockdown.

Our focus in 2021 will be on deepening and refining what we do, as well as tapping into our creativity to work with people in different ways. We will build on the relationships made over this past year, furthering our partnerships and collaborations in order to provide a range of programmes and initiatives to support our clients to grow, learn, and reach their potential.

Stay tuned to our newsletter and Facebook page over the year as we share in our work and stories. Wishing you all the best for a healthy and happy 2021.


Tauranga has a new way for our disabled whanau and friends to enjoy the views from the Mauao summit and other locations - all from the comfort of a mobility transporter. 

The trail rider is a single-wheeled mobility transport supporter. The single wheel supports the rider’s weight while the handles at the front and the back allow two, three or four helpers to guide the rider up and down tracks.

To help navigate the steep terrain of Mauao, the trail rider must be operated with a minimum of four guides at all times.

On less steep terrain or tracks fewer helpers may be needed.

The trail rider:

  • folds in half making it easier to transport
  • is ergonomically designed with fully adjustable seating
  • has disc brakes
  • has a cargo compartment to hold equipment and gear.

A massive congratulations to our amazing Community Connector, Nikki Moloney, for completing the Apprenticeship in Health and Wellbeing (Level 4), Social and Community Services.

The Apprenticeship in Social and Community Services deepened the skills she needs to work alongside people, their whānau and friends, and apply a person-centred approach to her work.


It is with deep gratitude and thanks that we farewell our much-valued Board Chair, Vaughan Anderson.
Vaughan has had an eight-year relationship with Momenta. He began his journey with Momenta as a volunteer and has spent the past six years as board member.
He has been enormous support through all of our changes and we wish him much happiness in the future. As a committed volunteer, we know that that Vaughan will continue to provide an enormous contribution to the Tauranga community.
