About this service
Our name describes exactly what we do. Having a home and successfully navigating social services are both very important for a person’s health and wellbeing. We link people to healthy and affordable homes and the right support services for their health and wellbeing needs. We help people to be contributing members of their communities, good tenants and good neighbours – no matter which service they receive from us.
We believe that everyone has the right to a healthy home and the potential to live well. Based on the proven Housing First approach we provide access to safe, affordable accommodation options and then link people with the health and social services they require for complete wrap-around support to sustain their tenancy.
At LinkPeople, we are passionate and respectful – our spirit is “together, we make a difference,” something we live and breathe every day. Because we couldn’t do what we do without our strong community relationships with services, organisations and landlords.
LinkPeople provides a variety of housing and support services to help people live well. Services offered include:
- rapid permanent housing – if you need a home, we will work with you to find a permanent place to call home as quickly as possible
- supported landlord services – if you have mental health concerns, we will help you to live well in a house we manage, and link you to the supports you need for your wellbeing
- service navigation – with this free service we will give you, your whānau and carers advice and link you to the health and social services you need
- GP integration – if you live in Taranaki and receive support from specialist mental health and addiction services, we can help you link your care to your GP.
