Community Social Work

The Community Social Work Service supports older people being impacted by social issues, poverty and poor health. This service also aims to maximise the independence and enhance the ability of older people to meet the challenges of their changing needs by providing short term, specialised support.

Our Social Workers take a holistic approach to the wellbeing of older people and support their physical, emotional, cultural and mental health needs. This can include advocacy support if required.

How we can help:

Our team can support you when interacting with agencies including:

  • Work and Income
  • Housing NZ, social housing or private landlords
  • District Health Boards
  • Utility companies

Our team can also help organise emergency food support and coordinate other services or equipment required.
