The NSAD/CareNZ waiata was gifted to NSAD’s Aspell House in the late 1980’s by a grateful client. Since then it has been used in many other recovery based residential programmes.

Although it has evolved over the years, the original tune and words are those below and are a taonga (treasure) of CareNZ, to be respected, cared for and shared in the spirit of recovery and peer support.

This waiata is sung on a daily basis in all our therapeutic community programmes.
