The first thing you notice about the Wise Group is that we’re a little bit different! We chase one thing relentlessly - our dream to create fresh possibilities and services for the wellbeing of people, organisations and communities. We’re a family of charitable organisations and our work includes health and wellbeing services, housing support, employment and navigation services, education and training, workforce development and research, software development, and finally business support services.
The Mental Health and Addictions Service is committed to supporting people to work towards their own recovery. We know that people who are experiencing homelessness often have multiple needs, particularly mental health and addictions issues that require a wrap-around response. Pathways out of homelessness require a 'one plan' approach: housing first with support and access to mental health and addictions care and treatment. We are committed to working together to end homelessness. This means working with other agencies to address the interrelationship of needs rather than working in isolation.

Te Puni Kōkiri supports The People's Project and recognises that housing solutions and wellbeing can be achieved if we all work together to implement a whānau centered approach.

Housing New Zealand supports The People’s Project by providing high quality, subsidised social housing to people in need for the duration of their need. It’s not just about getting a roof over people’s heads – we also work closely with other agencies to ensure our tenants have access to the support services they need to help them sustain their tenancy.
Hamilton Central Business Association represents around 1200 business and property owners located in the heart of the city. Our purpose is:
The Children’s Team is a way of working that is guided and supported providing co-ordinated services to vulnerable children and their whanau to both respond to need and take preventative action.
The Children’s Team is a child centric approach that recognises that no single agency alone can protect vulnerable children. Children’s needs are multifaceted, and require agencies to work together, to share information and provide services in a co-ordinated way to achieve better outcomes for vulnerable children and their whanau.
The Children’s Team approach contributes to The People’s Project, in cases where children are directly impacted by transient homelessness that is caused by family violence to ensure the immediate needs of the child are being met.
We want a system that delivers:
The Department of Corrections exists to make New Zealand a safer place by protecting communities from those who can cause harm and working with offenders and prisoners to reduce re-offending.
We understand that offender journeys into our services are often complex and it is through the delivery of a range of programmes in the treatment, industry and learning domains that they can return to the community to be the best they can be.
We know that many still face real social challenges finding stable housing, employment and access to affordable health service and it is through partnering with key government and non-government agencies that our rehabilitation and reintegration goals will be realised.
Waikato-Tainui is a leading tribal organisation responsible for developing and implementing initiatives which improve iwi outcomes in the areas of education and training, employment, tribal preservation, marae development, health and well-being, and environmental and resource management.
