Self-Isolating at home due to COVID-19
We are able to provide food and other welfare assistance if you are self-isolating at home due to COVID-19 and are unable to obtain food, through your family, friends or others.
Where a whānau is in need of short-term kai and you have been referred to us through our referral partners and networks we will work with you to meet your immediate needs when you are self-isolating at home.
If is food & groceries you need, a typical kai pack consists of dry goods to support each person in your household for 3 meals per day, for seven days. Donated food from our partners is also supplied such as meat, milk, canned food or fresh food.
Sanitiser, masks, household cleaning products, tissues wipes etc may also be provided. Nappies and sanitary items supplied if required.
Whānau will be supported to link to Work and Income assistance for on-going support as required or connected to other agencies who can help.
Kai packs will be delivered to your home by our own services or our partners. You will get a phone call advising you when the kai pack will be delivered.
If you require animal care or pet food let us know.
There may be other assistance you need such as accommodation/ living situation, immediate financial needs, caregiver to people in the household, and we will work with you to make those connections.

Kaumātua Support and Outreach Service
The Kaumātua Support and Outreach service is home based and focuses on wellbeing health and welfare of our Kaumātua who live on the Coromandel Peninsula and Hauraki Plains.
We assist them to get kai, medicine, disability support, attend medical appointments or other social services, attend hui and remain connected with each other, their whānau and iwi networks.
Community Connector Service
The Community Connector provides connections and direct support to a wider range of individuals and whānau so they can access information and support from government and non-government agencies as part of our response and recovery plan for COVID-19.
As part of getting back into employment or other life activities, some people may need to interact with multiple government agencies and community providers but may not have the knowledge or confidence to do so. As a result they could miss out on entitled support and services (eg Work & Income benefits or grants) and subsequently their health, wellbeing and future could be negatively impacted.
We work independently from government departments in the area of social and welfare needs, youth, education, wellbeing and with our partners link to health and mental health services.
