Haere Mai and welcome to our service.

Traffic light RED operations.

With a couple of exceptions, we are no longer seeing clients in our Main Street building.
Foodbank: is open with regular hours from 12.30 - 2.30 on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  To ensure safe physical distancing clients will need to line-up in the carpark; you may be asked to wait in your car once you arrive to try and give everyone more space.  ID is still required, but we will be pre-packing food bags, so bags are not required at RED.
Counselling: To our present clients - our team look forward to working with you on-line.  If we are able to take more clients we will invite you into the office for your first appointment, and after that will work with you on-line until we are back in orange.  Intakes are presently OPEN.
