See HCHA's submission to the Health Select Committee on the Care and Support (Pay Equity) Settlement Bill currently before the House
Whilst we support the uplift in wages for our staff, we submitted that two key areas of the Bill needed to be amended. One was on funding and the other on training. We advised the Committee that the Government is underfunding the implementation of pay equity whilst requiring legislation to compel employers to pay. The outcome for our already underfunded sector is ruinous.

NZHHA extends its sympathy and aroha to those who are bearing the loss, of family, and friends and their homes.
The following agencies operate in Canterbury, providing home support, community health and disability services. Those seeking home support should contact one of the Christchurch providers. If you or your family are already receiving support and have not had contact with the agency since the earthquake, please contact them, as all agencies are trying to contact the staff and the people they support.
