One of our roles is to monitor the enquiries we receive. Looking at our statistics helps to pinpoint the need for a new service, which led to us helping to set up an emergency housing trust in Whangarei.
We are currently fielding a lot of calls about bankruptcy as the recession hits home, and referring more people to the budgeting services in town.
We share our building with other community support groups, including the Whangarei Migrant Centre, the Women’s International Newcomers Social Group, and Literacy Whangarei.
Our advocates meet regularly with Work and Income managers to resolve systemic issues as we identify them through working with our clients.
