New Support page for Palmerstonians

Michael Neighbourly Lead from Roslyn - Terrace End

As promised, here is the page that PNCC has setup their support page, please find it in the link below,
www.pncc.govt.nz...

Quick excerpt from the site,

"We’ve developed a registration form so you can contact us no matter what you need – this means that you won’t struggle to find help.

We’re responsible for coordinating access to household goods and services including food, transport assistance, medication collection, and general household goods.
For food parcel provision, Council is working with The Salvation Army, which has already combined its food bank services with Methodist Social Services, Crossroads Church and Just Zilch, and moved into a food delivery-based model.

For welfare needs outside of household goods and services, such as accommodation or financial support, Council will provide information and pathways for people to access the correct support channels."


Direct access to the form,

Stay safe,
MP

Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

Trupti Biradar Reporter from Stuff Travel
