Fees

The Higher Ground programme is funded through contracts with the Waitemata District Health Board, Waikato District Health Board and the Ministry of Health. When a person comes into the programme they are, in many cases, eligible for a WINZ benefit. A portion of the benefit is paid directly to Higher Ground as the clients contribution to the cost of their time in the programme. Normally a client makes no further payment to Higher Ground towards the cost of the Programme.

Where a client does not qualify for any WINZ benefit a weekly charge will be levied. Currently this is approximately $150 per week.
