Where to get help...

We are going through a difficult and unprecedented time in New Zealand with the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.


I am reaching out to our community groups and local businesses to see how I can support them during this time. If you're worried about the impact of Covid-19 on how you operate, or on your staff's wellbeing, please get in touch.

It’s important we support each other during this difficult time.  

  • If you’re not sure what assistance may be available, you don’t know who to contact for help or if you’d just like more information, phone the 0800 Government Helpline on 0800 779 997
  • If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or need to self-isolate, contact the Healthline team (for free) on 0800 358 5453 or +64 9 358 5453 for international SIMS.
