16 days into lockdown!!

16 days into lockdown!!

He hōnore, he korōria ki te atua He maungārongo ki te whenua He whakaaro pai ki ngā tāngata katoa Hangā e te atua he ngākau hou Ki roto, ki tēnā, ki tēnā o mātou whakatōngia tō wairua tapu Hei āwhina, hei tohutohu i a mātou Hei ako hoki i ngā mahi mō tēnei rā. Āmine.

Kia ora koutou katoa

16 days seems such a long time to be restricted to your own bubble. Still, how many more days this crisis will continue to go on is anybody’s guess.

What sort of help has your Trust provided for members in need? And, what sort of help can the Trust provide?

Through our relationships with various support, government and community agencies, along with local councils across the rohe, the Trust has been able to help some of our members in need by the member being put into emergency housing, receive food, hygiene and medicine packs and assisted with energy requirements.

Over a third of our 600 registered Kaumātua both in Aotearoa and Overseas have received phone calls to enquire, “Is the Kaumātua is OK? Does the Kaumātua have whanāu or neighbours support? Is the Kaumātua alone during this crisis, or does the Kaumātua need help of any sort?”

The Phone Tree Team has found that most Kaumātua are extremely selfless and humble, and say “No, help the younger ones. I’m OK”. Irrespective, all have been appreciative that their Trust has contacted them.

Some Kaumātua have requested and are keen to receive follow up calls. Some Kaumātua have requested help or resources. All Kaumātua contacted so far have had their records checked to ensure all details are current and correct.

The Phone Tree Team is in touch with other agencies to confirm the help needed gets through to those who are identified as needing help.

Once the Kaumātua lists have been covered off, the Team will then move onto the rest of the 4,000 members.

However, please don’t wait to be called if you are urgently in need of assistance or support.

If you don't have the essentials you need to get through lockdown (such as food, medication or cleaning supplies), in the first instance please try calling a:

  • neighbour;
  • family member who lives nearby;
  • friend who lives nearby; or
  • check the availability for shopping online.

If these options are not available to you, then please call your local Civil Defence Emergency Management (CDEM) Group using the following 0800 numbers and email addresses.

This service is intended for people and whānau who don’t have any other options available to them.

The service operates seven days a week from 7am to 7pm.

Covid-19 UPDATE TO MEMBERS

Covid-19 UPDATE TO MEMBERS

What your Trust is doing.

Update from your Trust - 4th April, 2020

Kia ora koutou katoa
It has now been one full week since the New Zealand Government’s decision to place the country at Alert Level 4 (lockdown) in response to the worldwide COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic crisis and to activate a Civil Defence State of Emergency.

What has your Trust been doing?

Trustees and Operations are liaising, and working closely with various support, government and community agencies, along with local councils across the rohe. A number of our team are in lead roles.

  • It is important that Te Ātiawa keep abreast of what is happening.
  • Find out who needs assistance.
  • What type of assistance is needed.
  • How assistance can get to those who need it.

To help to identify what circumstance or situation our members find themselves in during this crisis, it is vital that we are able to communicate with you. And, that our records are up to date.
Please, if you could update your records that would be one way you could help us, to keep you informed.
<CLICK HERE> to enter your phone number; your mobile number; your email address and your residential address. Please be assured, as with all members’ details, this information is kept strictly private.

Operations are currently working on a Telephone Tree - Phase 1.

Shortly, our Kaumātua will be receiving a call from one of the team, to check that the Kaumatua is OK. The team member will also enquire whether the Kaumātua is alone during this crisis, and if they need help of any sort.

If the Kaumātua does require help then the team will contact the appropriate support agency we are working with to arrange the appropriate assistance. Unfortunately our team are also in lockdown during the Crisis and are not able to personally visit.

Te Ātiawa members, both in Aotearoa and Overseas, will be contacted.

One support agency we are working closely with to help our whānau, is Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu.

Te Pūtahitanga have Manaaki Navigators who have the all the safety PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), and the authorisation to travel “outside their bubble”, to enable the Manaaki Navigators to attend to iwi/members requiring assistance, whereas our staff do not have safety PPE or authorisation to travel, and therefore must remain in lockdown.

Members are reminded that it is also vitally important the Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu ‘Whanau Support Survey’ is filled out (if you haven’t already done so), enabling Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu to ascertain who needs support, and what that support looks like. <CLICK HERE> to fill out the Survey.

Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu have a triage analysist and a #MANAAKI20 Call Centre available 24/7, and are able to arrange urgent assistance. Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu also have network links with similar Whānau Ora Agencies and departments. The #MANAAKI20 Call Centre number is 0508 4 MANAAKI (0508 462 622)

Although the Trust Office is closed, the Operations team are still hard at work in the virtual environment.

You can still ring either of the Trust phone numbers: -

0800 284 292 or 03 573 5170 (Overseas Members ring +64 3 573 5170)

If your request is urgent we will make every endeavour to render fast assistance be it assistance with emergency housing, access to food or medical or any other assistance.

It would be appreciated if you know of any whānau member requiring assistance to forward such details to us.

While this Crisis continues your Trust encourages you to visit the website for updates.

Be assured we are on standby to support you through these challenging times.

In the meantime, please take extra care of yourself, your whānau, your friends and neighbours and be kind to others, especially at this very trying time.

Postponement of Hull Cleaning Workshops

Postponement of Hull Cleaning Workshops

The Marine Biosecurity workshops planned for 28 March in Nelson and 29 March at Waikawa have been postponed until Spring, recognising current concern around the spread of Covid-19.

We hope you enjoy some time on the water if you are required to self isolate to help prevent spread of the virus. Being in nature is good for both immunity and our state of mind in these difficult times.

Attached is information on how to ensure you also prevent the spread of marine pests as you get out and about. Clean hulls and clean hands work the same way. Pests and disease don't get shared when they are removed.

Stay safe and we will see you in advance of hull maintenance in the Spring.

We are pleased that Altex Paints have committed to continue to support these valuable workshops whenever they can resume
