The team


Note: 2nd July 2015

We are currently in an office in 276 Hereford St, over the road from our usual office and in the City Mission building.  If you call us, you may get the message that you have reached “box 851″.  We are trying to change this so that people know they have got through to the correct people.  We are also having trouble checking our messages, so please call us back if we have not returned your call.  Thank you for your time and patience during this transitional period.

Do you want to give feedback about the benefit in New Zealand? And go in to the draw to win one of five $50 grocery vouchers? University student, Alicia Sudden, is looking for research participants who have been on the benefit at some point in their life, and come off this benefit either temporarily or permanently since July 2013. All you need to do is fill out this brief survey and you can help work towards a better benefit system and go in the draw to win a $50 grocery voucher.
