New Zealand Companies Office (‘Search the Companies Register’ for ‘Dore’). There’s a brief ‘administrator’s report’ on that site which may be worth people who have paid Dore NZ reading.

Thanks to ‘Joesmum’ for this comment:

‘Dore Group Ltd NZ put itself into voluntary liquidation on 23rd March, 2009. My son started the Program barely 3 months ago. They insisted on $NZ5500 upfront and had recently had a nationwide recruitment campaign.’

Anyone know what’s going on? Once again there’s nothing on the Dore NZ website or on any other official Dore sites as far as I can see, though this happened a few weeks ago.

  1. […] by gimpy on April 16, 2009 According to Brainduck the New Zealand branch of Dore, having survived the collapse of Dore (UK) and Dore (Australia), […]

  2. […] Dore New Zealand goes into liquidation Jump to Comments Last year, the Dore – which claimed to be able to treat dyslexia and other specific learning difficulties – went into administration in the UK and Australia. Dore UK failed to refund all the money that families had spent on what was promoted – without a good evidence-base – as a miracle cure. Now, Dore New Zealand has gone into liquidation. […]

  3. i was gven a defferd start to the program late last year due to health reasons i needed medical clearence and paid only for the assessment part. while i have not invested as musch as everyone else i was lucky my instinct to pay the full amount was wrong, even though financially i am not in as much debt as you guys who have started on the program it is still a concern as to whether we will recieve any of the money invested back.

    good luck to those who have paid up and commenced the program hopefully it can still continue.

  4. I am totally devastated by this, I honestly felt DORE was helping my son… $5500 invested and wasted.

  5. I too am very disappointed. My son is nearing completion on the programme and we will have to guess as to whether he’s ready to stop or not. I feel particularly sorry for those who have started recently and whose hopes have been dashed – as well as their bank balances.
    I was told that we would receive a communication about the liquidation by email or phone but have heard nothing. Has anyone else been contacted?

  6. Dore has a history of being abysmal at communicating with its customers when this sort of thing happens.
    Can I suggest you post on their forum at and ask them what’s happened?
    As you are creditors they do have a duty to keep you informed. Good luck!

  7. hey i was on the course as like most people and its gone lol is there any number or name of some one that i can contact to help us out in anyway.

    as you can see i cant type emails well so i realy need the help from them

    cheers jay

  8. A group of private individuals have secured the Dore rights in New Zealand and have recommenced operations. Those who were on the programme have been offered the opportunity to complete the programme. [Contact details deleted by Duck]

  9. Dore New Zealand has opened its doors once again. They are back in Auckland.

  10. They are back up and running. We had paid up front the initial $5,500 and were contacted and invited back on the programme. This time they have a fantastic website for their clients so you only have to visit every 3-4 months (great if you live outside Auckland). Clients can log on, pick up their exercises and mark themselves on how they did, as well as see their progress, keep diaries, etc. The information is all collated at the DORE Centre. So far so good. They have also re-opened in a more limited capacity in Christchurch.

  11. I am considering putting my nearly 8yr old Dyslexic/ADHD child through the course, and wondering about the benefits of the course from people who have experienced it, as well as risks involved in the company crashing again. Any feedback greatly appreciated.


  13. Im a 33 year old man with dyslexic will it help or is it a waste of money and time

  14. I paid $5500 at CHATSWOOD, AUSTRALIA in 2007;
    ?Phone#_business AUCKLAND, NEW_ZEALAND now, in 2012;

    happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I want to suggest you few interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!

  16. I really tend to go along with pretty much everything that was composed inside “Dore NZ

    I am grateful for pretty much all the actual information.
    Thanks a lot,Isabelle

  19. Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I certainly enjoyed reading it, you will be a great author.I will be sure to bookmark your blog and may come back in the future. I want to encourage yourself to continue your great work, have a nice holiday weekend!

  20. I don’t comment, but I browsed a few remarks on Dore NZ voluntary liquidation | Brainduck’s Weblog.
    I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind.
    Could it be just me or does it give the impression like some of the comments come across like they are written by brain dead folks?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other social sites, I’d like to keep up with you. Would you make a list of all of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

  21. I think that everything published made a ton of sense. However, what about this?

    what if you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your content is not good., but suppose you added a headline
    to possibly get a person’s attention? I mean Dore NZ voluntary liquidation | Brainduck’s Weblog is kinda
    plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s front page and watch how tgey create
    news titles to grab viewers interested. You might add
    a related video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about what you’ve got to say.

    Just my opinion, it would make your website a little bit more interesting.

  22. It’s not my first time to pay a visit this website, i am visiting this web page dailly and
    obtain fastidious data from here every day.
