One-to-One free Social Work Support


Do you feel 'stuck'? Alone? Under pressure? Don't know where else to turn?

Our kind and experienced social workers can assist you with many life challenges, including:

Budgeting, financial hardship
Goal-setting, life direction
Relationship issues
Parenting skills
Family violence
Employment problems
Health concerns
Accommodation & emergency housing  

We can also link you with other services as needed. Our social workers, Jo, Nita, and Michelle know the community well and can help you find skilled assistance in many different situations. We are also able to do home visits if transport is a problem.


We don't have a magic wand but we do help you to find your strengths, discover options, and make choices to improve your life and the well-being of your family/whanau.



Sometimes it helps to have another listening ear or moral support at important meetings.

We can accompany you to appointments with:
