Auckland - LinkPeople


Services in Auckland

In the South Auckland region, LinkPeople offers the following services:

  • Supportive landlord service – connecting adults using Counties Manukau Health’s community mental health services to the appropriate housing, from social housing through to private rentals. This is a service for people who are experiencing mental health and/or addiction issues. We also work alongside people to problem-solve tenancies as they arise
  • Rapid permanent housing service – working alongside individuals and families who are transitionally (short-term) homeless to find permanent housing
  • Sustaining tenancies at risk – a homelessness prevention programme delivered alongside the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, the Ministry of Social Development, and Kāinga Ora. We work with individuals and families at risk of losing their tenancies to keep them housed, while also addressing any underlying issues that impact on their tenancy and wellbeing.
  • Housing First – LinkPeople is also a member of the Auckland Housing First Collective, working to house people sleeping rough in South Auckland.
