Rough Sleeping and Homelessness in Porirua. Need a Helping Hand: Porirua City Services Guide

Rough Sleeping and Homelessness:

If you're concerned about someone who may be sleeping rough or homeless, please phone Porirua City Council's Contact Centre on 04 237 5089, or report it through the Antenno App.

We'll then follow up with relevant agencies who may be able to provide help or support. If you think the behaviour of someone on the street is aggressive, unlawful, or unsafe, call New Zealand Police on 105, or for Emergencies, dial 111.

Need a Helping Hand: Porirua City Services Guide

With support from some of our key social service partners, Porirua City has developed a brochure which may be able to help you or someone you know get through some tough times. The brochure includes access to support with Food, Housing & Accommodation, Health, Youth Services, Financial, Information, Support Services, and Rainbow Services.

If you’d like hard-copies of the brochure for yourself or to give to someone you know just pop in to Porirua City Council in Cobham Court and grab as many as you need – they are free for everyone. You can also find a more comprehensive list of services under Community Directories.
