Please note while Auckland is at COVID-19 level 3 lockdown, we are working hard to keep the people we support, our staff and volunteers safe. Most of our services are operating within contactless guidelines. We cannot accept food or goods donations from the public at levels 3 & 4.  Click here to get help.
