Your one-stop community support and connection centre (Community blog)

It’s been a busy start to the year for Community Networks Wanaka and LINK Upper Clutha as we grow and enhance our one-stop community support and connection centre. Together, we provide information and support; connect and collaborate; and build a resilient community.  

Our team has doubled in size in 2021. Read more here.

You’ll be hearing more from us on what this means over the coming months, as we shine a light on the different services and resources available to you within the local area.

This month, we’re highlighting the financial advisory services we can connect you with.

Wanaka is a great place to live, but it isn’t always an easy place to live. 

Community Networks Wanaka can help you and your whānau tackle anything life throws at you, including financial worries. Whether you’re worried about getting by, up to your ears in debt, buying a house or just trying to save, we can connect you with free financial advice and support for a whole range of issues. 

From our home at the Wanaka Community Hub, friendly Community Networks staff can put you in touch with IRD to talk about tax, student loans and child support, help you complete application forms to see what Work and Income benefits you might be entitled to, or arrange a chat with our registered social worker, who can talk through your difficulties and connect you with longer-term support.

More on that next week… 

Whatever puzzle you’re trying to solve, call 443 7799, stop in at the Community Hub at 34 McDougall Street or visit to see what help is available.
