Homelessness is a growing problem in Auckland and it needs to be tackled as a priority.
The harsh reality is that we see people sleeping rough all over the city, with City Mission calculating at least 179 people within a 3 km radius of the Sky Tower. It’s been estimated that over 20,000 Aucklanders could be without a home.
That is untenable in a world-class international city like Auckland.
As Mayor, I am working with central government and with NGOs like Lifewise to end chronic homelessness in Auckland.
You can help too.
I am raising money as part of my participation in the Lifewise Big Sleepout 2017. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button.
The more people that know about Lifewise, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you for your generosity, it means a lot!
