Iwi & Regional support

Many of us are going to need extra help and support during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) rāhui.  Here’s where you can easily find your local organisations all in one place.

These organisations provide services from food packages to counselling, and much more.  They know the challenges that have come up for us, stuck in our bubble, and will be able to help you get the support you need. 

Please let us know via the Contact Us page, if any of this information is incorrect.

If you or your whānau are feeling unwell phone the Ministry of Health straight away on their official COVID-19 Healthline 0800 358 5453.
