๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ Itโ€™s Not OK - November 1st to 30th ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ

The Team from Neighbourhood Support New Zealand

Creating safer communities means ensuring that no one lives in fear of harm on the streets or in their own home. For the month of November, we want to raise awareness and work together to end all forms of violence including family harm, elder and child abuse, sexual assault, gang violence, and more. These victimisations affect us all and can have lasting effects that spill into our everyday lives including at work and school.

To do your part this month, perhaps consider supporting a womenโ€™s refuge or work with Police in your area to host an info night on how to identify elder or child abuse in your community. This monthโ€™s campaign also coincides with White Ribbon Day on 25 November which is an internationally celebrated day that aims to prevent violence towards women.

Let us know how youโ€™re spreading the โ€˜Itโ€™s Not OKโ€™ message in your home or in your community by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

Finding our Alert Level 4 routine

New Zealand Government

This week sees us all getting used to living at Alert Level 4. For this to work, we must all stick to the plan.

Stay home. It WILL save lives.
Letโ€™s all remember why we are taking such extreme measures.
Staying home wonโ€™t always be easy. But the evidence tells us this is the best way to save the lives of other New Zealanders.

Finding our routines
It will take some time to build up new daily routines. Thatโ€™s to be expected. We all need to be gentle with ourselves, and accept that things could be difficult for a while as we learn to adjust.

Looking after ourselves and others
Donโ€™t forget to take time to look after yourself, and also to check-in on others. Asking someone how they are feeling is a good way to connect and show that you care.

We all need to stick to the plan
For this to work, and the effort we are all making to be worth it, we all need to stick to the plan, all the time. No exceptions.

Donโ€™t move around
The virus is spread by us. So we all need to avoid moving around as much as possible. If you do go out for exercise or to get essential supplies, stay local. This is incredibly important. Donโ€™t move between different areas.

Thank you for doing your bit
A massive thank you to everyone for working so hard to slow the spread of COVID-19. Together, we can and will save lives.

People is not taking COVID-19 level 4 serious

Milena from Remuera

Hi Neighbours!

My husband is an essential worker and he was very surprised when he was driving and saw lots of people walking in the streets at Remuera (he saw elders too). He said it looks like a day without car, but people outside.
I know we can go out to have some air but there is not point if everybody go out at the same time and donโ€™t take the 2 meters distance! (Just saying)
The PM said act like you have COVID-19..
if we donโ€™t help each other the quarantine is going to be longer.
Take care and stay safe
Cheers
