Care in the Community pivots as NZ returns to greater normality

  • Support for ongoing and transitional Care in the Community support, including: 

  • A pivot in work for Community Connectors 

  • Confidence and certainty for community food organisations and MSD’s Food Secure Communities programme 

  • Funding to support the wellbeing of disabled people 

The Government is updating its Care in the Community (CiC) response as the number of households needing support to safely self-isolate with COVID-19 reduces. 

“Our Government has continued to act swiftly in responding to Omicron. Our immediate and ongoing efforts have been focused on supporting people and whānau to safely self-isolate, and providing social, wellbeing and food support to them and their households,” Minister for Social Development and Employment Carmel Sepuloni said. 

“We’ve worked hard to slow the spread of Omicron, and our Government’s response is showing to have paid dividends with a drop in demand for support. Now with higher rates of vaccination coverage, we’re now able to pivot our response and support a broader range of circumstances for people who’ve been significantly impacted by COVID-19 requirements,” Carmel Sepuloni said.
