Are you struggling to find a rental or buy a home in Auckland?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Hello everyone,

I was hoping to get in contact with someone from the Māori, Pasifika and Indian community who have either struggled to find a rental or buy a home.

The housing crisis has affected all three groups particularly badly, so if there's anyone who comes from these groups who is willing to talk please drop me a message: ged.cann@stuff.co.nz
