The Community Connector service works with families, whānau and others who need help finding support in the community, whatever that may be. This support helps reduce isolation, and the Community Connector assists people with navigating or accessing government agencies and other services, or connects them with social groups or people who can provide the help they need such as budgeting, preparing for employment, developing parenting skills and learning English.
Referrals are made by GPs, government agencies, schools, kura or other community services working with an individual or whānau. People can also refer themselves.
For more information on this service, please email us via our contact form.
If you have tested positive for COVID-19 and need to isolate, our team can help make staying home easier.
A Community Connector can collect and deliver food parcels or medication to your home, provide books or activities for you or any children who are isolating, and drop off other items you may need.
If you require additional support, we can help you find the right people to get in touch with. Our friendly team can also call you to check on how you are doing throughout your isolation period.
If you live in the Mid Canterbury district, call or txt 027 247 1094 for assistance.
