Supported Living

Your Whanau/family or support worker can help you find somewhere to live if needed and you will need to pay a bond, if required, sign a Tenancy Agreement Form and pay the rent every week or fortnight. This is very difficult for lots of people, but your support worker can support you with things like a budget plan and organising automatic payments with the bank.
