Noela Apineru

Community Support Worker - Family Start
Joined the team June 2017

Noella finds great value in being able to meet with people face-to-face and learning to appreciate the diversity of cultural backgrounds.

For the whānau and community that Noela reaches, it is important they know her ambition is to walk alongside, to support and not judge people.

Away from work her time is focused on friends, ā’iga (whānau), and her children. She also enjoys time in the garden and being involved in commitments with the church community.

Noela considers educating her children to ‘aim high’ and to be humble and respectful people who remember the love of God as her most significant accomplishment in life.

Noela holds a Diploma in Early Childhood Education.
