Following the announcement made this afternoon, Aotearoa New Zealand is continuing in Level 4 lockdown. This means that all RHW groups, events and face-to-face services continue to be postponed. Please note that group will not take place on Monday.
As a team we are reviewing and preparing our strategy for digital services if lockdown is extended further on Tuesday, please keep an eye on our social media for updates on this.
As mentioned previously, we as staff will still be working from home, so if there is a way we can support you while we all keep safe, please let us know and don’t hesitate to get in touch. Otherwise, here are some details for other phone and online support services that may be of help. Ngā manaakitanga; stay in your bubble, wear a mask while out and about, and be kind.
