Inspiring Kiwi: Monica Stockdale

More than 30 years ago Monica Stockdale set up the first dedicated Maori addiction service in the country, literally out of the boot of her car.

Te Rangihaeata Oranga Trust is now fully established in the problem gambling sector, providing a range of services for whanau in the Hawke's Bay battling with gambling issues and other related problems.

Monica's life-long commitment, passion and drive are seen by many in the sector as truly inspirational, and although she has recently announced her retirement, Monica continues her work to this day as manager of Awhina Whanau services in Hastings in a part-time capacity.
