The Community Connection service takes an active approach to ensuring people needing help are able to access information, support, and services across multiple government agencies and service providers.

The Community Connectors support the welfare needs of individuals and whānau to keep them safe while isolating at home/in the community. Community Connectors navigate and connect individuals and whānau to various services available during and in transition from self-isolation.

MSD-funded service providers are present in communities where support is needed. These providers have the capacity and the workforce to deliver the Community Connection service.

Everything you need to know to get help while self-isolating is on the Work and Income website.

Community Connectors are available to help you access food, frozen meals, masks, sanitiser, medicines or health support, and any other need you may have.

Support through Community Connectors is completely free, check out the full list of providers here.
