Our Office Doors Are Closed, But Business As Usual

Updated: May 6


Kia ora whānau, Updated: 6 May 2020 New Zealand is at Alert Level 3. More information on Alert Level 3


KFST is currently abiding by the Government recommendations for personal movement.

Limiting our interactions with others is our best defence against COVID-19. Under Alert Level 3 we must continue to stay in our household bubbles whenever we are not at work, school, buying the groceries or exercising.


People must stay within their household bubble but can expand this to reconnect with close family/whānau, or bring in caregivers, or support isolated people. It’s important to protect your bubble if you extend it. Keep your bubble exclusive and only include people where it will keep you and them safe and well. If anyone within your bubble feels unwell, they should self-isolate from everyone else within your bubble. Don’t invite or allow social visitors, such as friends, family and whānau, to enter your home.


KFST will keep it's office doors closed until further recommendation from the Government. However, our support workers are stil working and available for remote contact such as phone calls, video meetings - no face-to-face home visits. We look forward to continuing our working relationship with you all during this unqiue situation.

To be connected with a KFST worker you can call 0800 211 211 and ask to be put through to Kirikiriroa Family Services Trust (aka Family Start) in Hamilton. Once you get put through follow the prompts and use that workers extention number. Or call their mobile direct. Workers do not take calls before 8:30am and after 5pm, nor do they take calls in the weekends.
