Reina Harris | Report from The Salvation Army Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit.
For 19 people in West Auckland hard times have led to them sleeping on the streets of Waitakere. A glimpse into the experience of 19 of these rough sleepers has been captured in the latest report from The Salvation Army Social Policy and Parliamentary Unit. These stories demonstrate the impact of the current very challenging Auckland housing market, which has left the 19 individuals who participated in the report with no other option than to sleep rough in bus shelters, vehicles, under buildings or bridges or in a tent. The social housing and support needed by these individuals is not currently available in sufficient quantity.This report concludes the Government must recognise that shelter is a basic human right and accept a statutory obligation to ensure adequate housing is provided for all New Zealanders.
