Welcome to the Government's Māori Communications Response
This is a one-stop portal for all the information you need about COVID-19 and the vaccine rollout. If you need support you can find it here. Also you will see some of what our iwi, Māori organisations and marae are doing in the cities and around the motu. We will try and direct you to the most relevant information available for Māori, such as where you can get Whānau Ora support, help for your business, and contacting your local food bank.
We will provide links to other agencies and organisations’ websites and signpost to other trusted information so you know where you can access the services and support you and your whānau need. Kia kaha everyone.
