New 200 page Good Health Rotorua directory released

Everything you need to know about health services and wellbeing support on offer in Rotorua district, and how to contact the people and organisations involved.

That’s the 2014 edition of Good Health Rotorua which has just been published and is being made available free of charge from Rotorua District Council’s (RDC) website rdc.govt.nz.

The comprehensive directory of health and wellbeing services is produced annually and is a partnership between the council and Citizens Advice Bureau aimed at improving the quality and availability of information.

This year’s 200 page publication includes a new chapter on homeless support, and identifies resources for local support people who deal with homeless people in the community. The Community Services chapter has also been updated to reflect emerging groups in the district.

Rotorua district councillor Merepeka Raukawa-Tait, portfolio lead for the council's People Strategy, said Good Health Rotorua provides a valuable one-stop service to identify organisations that can be drawn on to assist with local people’s health and wellbeing needs.

“I’d certainly encourage residents to check out the directory online. It’s a chance to see who’s new in the field, what they offer and what’s changed.

“Good Health Rotorua is produced annually so if anyone finds they’re not listed and feel they should be, they can let Citizens Advice Bureau know and be included in next year’s edition. The bureau works really hard to try and keep the directory as up-to-date and comprehensive as possible so they welcome new information.

“When people read this directory they might be surprised at the variety of services we have on offer in Rotorua. We’ve got very rich and diverse groups in our city, and they all want to do well by people in our community. We’re quite fortunate, really, to have that depth of support,” said Mrs Raukawa-Tait.

Local services can print or download the individual chapters they use frequently, or the whole document if they use many parts of the publication.

The 2012 Good Health Rotorua directory can be downloaded for free from the Rotorua District Council website rdc.govt.nz and hard copies purchased from the council’s Customer Centre, or the Citizens Advice Bureau, for $12.
