Description

Noho Ᾱhuru – Healthy Homes is a free service which aims to support low income families to have warmer, drier and healthier homes. We deliver our interventions through a mixture of social work and interagency collaboration.

Once a referral for whānau is received and accepted, initial contact is made by a member of our Social work team. They will make an appointment to do a home assessment with the family.

We may be able to assist with the following interventions. Interventions are determined during the assessment in agreement with whānau.

These interventions can include:

    • Education on keeping houses warm and dry
    • Social Work
    • Insulation
    • Ventilation
    • Curtains
    • Carpets
    • Heating
    • Bedding
    • Budgeting Services
    • Full and Correct Entitlement Assessments (FACE)
    • Support with Social Housing Applications
    • Minor repairs such as:
  1. Broken Windows
  2. Window Latches
  3. Draught Stopping
  4. Installation of Smoke Alarms
