Begging and the Homeless

Begging and the Homeless

Occasionally our town centre attracts people who are down on their luck for whatever reason. Begging is a bad look for any town centre and not something to be encouraged.
If you are in the position to offer help, here are two important contacts:

Salvation Army
Welfare, Budgeting and Support
32 Delta Ave
New Lynn (Closest to Blockhouse Bay)
Ph: 09 827 3128

Auckland City Mission – Outreach and Support Services
Ph: Allyson Miller or
Ilana James
Ph: 09 303 9783

If there is a problem you feel needs to be dealt with by the police but is not a 111 emergency, call:
Avondale Police: 302 6400
