Hello. My name is Christine Dorsey and I am the Waitaki Multicultural Councils Newcomers Network and Migrants Coordinator. The aim of the Waitaki Multicultural Council is to assist people to new make contacts and settle into the Waitaki area. Our support provides information, advice, advocacy, support, English tuition and gatherings to make your settlement a positive experience.

This service has helped hundreds of families to settle into their new community and make new friends. Currently over 640 families are involved and we invite you to be part of this by emailing me today. There is no obligation and no cost. Just attend whatever you choose or even just receive the information so you know what is happening around Waitaki.

I’ve lived in Oamaru with my husband and two daughters for a long time and I have lots of local information to share. I also understand what it is like to settle in a new community and would love to walk this exciting journey with you, as you forge new friendships and new beginnings. Give me a call today on 027 242 8643.
