During the COVID-19 lockdown the economy came to a halt. Whānau lost jobs and/or part of their wages/income.
Unemployment and deprivation already existed across Mataatua and this has been exacerbated as well.
It going to take us a while to recover.
Since lockdown began we have operated a 7 day 0800 hardship line, given out over 1000 kai packs along with hygiene packs, firewood and hardship grants.
We are still giving out a limited number of kai packs every week.
Our 0800 number is operational and our team of problem solvers can help you identify solutions for your needs.
We may be able to help with:
- Hygiene Packs
- Service navigation
- Employment Support
If you're going through a tough time, contact us. We want to hear from you.
Do you need support? Call us on 0800 MATAATUA (628 228) option 9 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
We provide a range of other services, including:
If you need support, whether it’s for COVID-19 information, financial hardship, a need for advocacy, emotional support, or employment support, call us for a korero - you don't have to do this alone.
We can talk through your needs and help you find the right solution - this might be with making the most of what you already have, by linking you to the right service or we may be able to access some funding that can help.
Don't be whakamā, this is a difficult time for many and that's why support is here.
