If you know a vulnerable or elderly neighbour, please help them complete their census form. Data from the census is used to determine the level of health care funding given to communities.
Waiheke lost funding in the last census because our most vulnerable people weren’t accurately represented.
What you can still do now:
- Arm yourself with a smartphone or tablet
- Knock on a door
- Offer to help fill in this form: https://www.census.govt.nz/
- If they don’t want help, mention the library has PC’s they can use to do this in their own time
Feel good? Repeat steps above.
Let’s help our community get the on-island care it deserves.
