Do you need help with Work & Income issues?
We offer free advocacy advice designed to help you understand your rights so that you can advocate for yourself and your community! Our organisation is volunteer run. While we do our best to work with as many people as we can, we often struggle to meet the incredibly high demand that we receive due to growing hardship in New Zealand. The more volunteers we have with us the more able we are to help people receive their full entitlements and transform our welfare system to one of support.
Our team of volunteer advocates assists people to get what they’re entitled to from Work & Income. We don’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Nor should you!
AAAP can work with you to:
- Offer advice and information
- Ensure you're receiving your full entitlements
- Gain access to food grants and other essential items
- Resolve Work and Income disputes
If you need help, give us a call or come in to our office in Onehunga, 120 Church St. We're open Wednesday to Friday from 10am to 3pm.
Or if you're out West you can find us every Wednesday from 12.30 till 3:00pm at the Waitemata Community Law Centre, 1 Trading Place, Henderson. We are also at the Ranui Action House (476 Swanson Road) on Fridays from 9.30am till 12pm.
