Income Support (Welfare)Advocacy
We can advise you on your rights at WINZ (Work and Income New Zealand) and ensure you are getting all your entitlements. We can help lift sanctions or get a food grant if you are in direct and immediate hardship (You do not need to be on income support/a benefit to get a food grant). We can also tautoko you to navigate applying for Job Seekers or Supported Living income support payments, TAS (temporary additional support), and access the Accommodation Supplement.
Just reach and let us know what you need at WINZ and how we can tautoko you.
PLEASE NOTE WE ONLY PROVIDE WELFARE ADVOCACY FOR OUR RBHU HOSPO UNION MEMBERS. YOU MUST BE A HOSPO WORKER BEFORE JOINING RBHU.
If you are not a RBHU union member you can contact AAAP (Auckland Action Against Poverty), they cover the whole of Aotearoa/New Zealand and can engage in welfare advocacy on your behalf: [email protected]
