Services in the Waikato

In the Waikato region, we deliver a number of services to support people who are generally referred by community mental health, Work and Income, or Kāinga Ora. These include:

Ahikāroa – residential co-ordination and housing case work support service for people receiving services from the Waikato DHB or Hauora Waikato Mental Health and Addiction Service
Sustaining tenancies – support for people currently in a tenancy and at risk of losing their accommodation
Rapid permanent housing – working with families to support them out of transitional or emergency housing and into a home

Contact us at waikato.info@linkpeople.co.nz or phone 0800 932 432 for more information.

If you have nowhere to stay tonight or in the next seven days, please contact Work and Income to access emergency housing.

We are also seeking partnerships with landlords and developers in the region, click here to find out more.
