Meet our team
My name is Gerrit Wolters; I was born in Holland been married for 37 years to my Bestie Suzie. We have three Tamariki and eight Mokopuna and number nine on the way.
It is a privilege to work and live in Te Tai Poutini. I bring with me my passion to see people succeed and achieve their fullest potential to discover and realise their strengths.
My back ground is eighteen years social work practice. During this time I have been actively involved in community development, Community youth work , Statutory social work; Criminal Justice, Youth justice, C&P and Mental health. I have served on a number of BOT’s for school and NGO’s and chaired a number of NGO’s which were set up to support our Rangatahi in the community.
My Role at Homebuilders West Coast Trust is as Team leader for the Home based social work team here in Greymouth and Westport.
