Successfully navigating social services and having a home are both really important for a person’s health and wellbeing. So, in 2016, Linkage and Keys Social Housing teamed up to become LinkPeople. Following this, on 17 October 2017, Webhealth, the online directory, closed after 13 years of helping people to find health and wellbeing services in their area.
The directory was set up in a time when it was difficult for people to access and find information online about local social and health services. As technology has developed over time, the internet has become much more accessible and the breadth of information available online has increased. LinkPeople will now be focusing on new ways to support the people in our communities through our housing and support services.
Below is a list of just some of the many health, wellbeing and community directories available in New Zealand that you might find useful instead of Webhealth:
- Citizens Advice Bureau directory – www.cab.org.nz/gethelp/sor/Pages/home.aspx
- Family services directory – www.familyservices.govt.nz/directory/
- Health navigator – www.healthnavigator.org.nz
- Health pages – healthpages.co.nz
- Healthpoint – www.healthpoint.co.nz
We are confident that people will still be able to find the services they need online. But, if anyone needs more support, our housing and support services are here to help.
