Our results

We work hard to help the people in our communities live well. See our results below from 1 July - 31 October 2017. 

777

people supported

We support everyone referred to us. Our support teams have linked 777 people from Rotorua, the Waikato, Taranaki, Whanganui and Wellington to the health, social and tenancy supports they need for their wellbeing and to live well. 

242

households housed

As well as helping people to find the health and social support they need, we've supported 242 households to find healthy and affordable homes that meet their needs in Auckland, Rotorua, the Waikato, Taranaki, Whanganui, Wellington and Christchurch.

71,29
71% private rentals
29% social housing

Most of the homes we have found for people have been in the private rental market, so private landlords are extremely important to us. We also support people to live in our own community housing, and can help people to access social housing.

Case studies

A place of her own to live a good life

Before calling LinkPeople, Manu had an alcohol addiction, no tenancy history and was at risk of suicide. With LinkPeople's support, she was able to find a place of her own and create a goal plan to help her live well.

Support for a brighter future

Chris is a 49-year-old male with health and addiction concerns who had been living transiently. With LinkPeople's support, Chris now has a place to call home and is linked to the health and social supports he needs for his wellbeing and to live well.

Rapid permanent housing: collaboration key to success

An effective housing intervention relies on collaboration with all social and health services. Good partnership with MSD and Housing NZ helped LinkPeople successfully house this family.
