Auckland Forum Makes It Easier For Veterans To Access Support

A one-stop-shop of services for veterans is coming back to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland this month.

Veterans' Affairs is putting the call out for serving and former New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) personnel to join them on Wednesday 29 November for the Te Uru o Tāmaki Makaurau West Auckland Veterans’ Forum.

It's an opportunity for veterans to discuss face-to-face with someone their current needs or future support, learn more about their entitlements and set up or change any support they require.

“As a unit of the New Zealand Defence Force, our role is to provide support to all veterans who have qualifying service,” Head of Veterans' Affairs Bernadine MacKenzie said.

“We strongly encourage veterans, whether they are currently serving or have left the Defence Force, to come and discover what's available for them. Family and whānau are also welcome to attend.”

The forum marks a return to Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland after a successful forum earlier this year in Manukau.

Veterans will be able to meet representatives from a number of organisations including the Royal New Zealand Returned and Services Association, The Navy Club, Te Kiwi Māia – The Courageous Kiwi, Taskforce Kiwi, NZDF Personnel Medals & Archives, Bay Audiology and the NZDF Force Financial Hub.

Date: Wednesday, 29 November, 2023

Time: 10am - 2pm

Where: The Trusts Arena, 65-67 Central Park Drive, Henderson

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

ACT: Call To Abolish Human Rights Commission

“The Human Rights Commission’s appointment of a second Chief Executive is just the latest example of a taxpayer-funded bureaucracy serving itself at the expense of delivery for New Zealanders,” says ACT MP Todd Stephenson. More

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More
