Belong Aotearoa (Formerly known as ARMS) is a specialist settlement agency that focuses on addressing the root and systemic causes of “pain points” and barriers to successful settlement and integration for newcomers.

In over 15 years we have delivered targeted programmes, projects and services in Auckland to address the needs of the community. We have built valuable relationships within the newcomer and ethnic community, with other service providers and with the wider community through our projects, collaborations, engagement and consultation events. Despite the positive impact with those who we’ve supported, the barriers and pain points are still present, calling for innovative solutions for long-term impact.
