Earthquake Notes

Financial assistance is available through emergency civil defence grants.  These are administered by Work and Income but you do not need to be a WINZ client to qualify, everyone in need is eligible and this may assist with some of the extra costs you may be facing.  Contact your local WINZ office (Hornby and Ashburton will the closest for most of you).  Red Cross are also making emergency grants to those in need, phone 0800 754 726 for information or go to

For any other assistance you need please phone the Govt helpline of 0800 779997 or contact Amy Adams' office - 03 344 0418.
