Don't assume people are okay, check in on those around you. You never know when they might need a helping hand or an ear to listen to them over the phone.
Hello Neighbours I’ve just moved down to Wellington from Auckland with just my back pack of clothes. Someone mentioned to ask on here. Would anybody be able to help me out with food, Any household items, M/L/XL lclothes please? And if anyone had a spare tv/laptop or even a phone would be brilliant. I’m trying to get back on my feet moving away from Auckland for a fresh start. So far Wellington is great thanks
Technically it is not a Feathered Friend but this a lovely pic from Rosa Marie after her recent visit to Zealandia. Weta used to be much more common, when was the last time you saw a weta in your garden?
The Ministry of Social Development has recently updated the Guide for Carers, a valuable resource for those who care for family, whānau, āiga or friends with a health condition, a disability, an injury, or a physical or mental illness.
It covers a range of topics such as financial help, assessing needs, getting help at home and being able to take a break from caring.
The Guide for Carers is available online now: bit.ly...
