An Australian charity that provides services for the homeless has come to Aotearoa.

Orange Sky this week launched a customised van that will provide free mobile laundry and shower services as well as conversation for rough sleepers across Auckland.

The service is partly funded by the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.

Minister Phil Twyford says while superficially the service is about clean clothes and showers, the main benefits are the social interactions, the conversations and the opportunity for social services to reach out to rough sleepers.

The Orange Sky van will be operated by New Zealanders and work alongside other providers including Housing First.

The Politics of Kindness
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: There's been a bit of debate online right now about what it means to have 'New Zealand values'. NZ First have brought the issue up by wanting a 'Values Test' for migrants and John Tamihere has written some thoughts in his latest NZ Herald column
Where's the business backbone?
John Tamihere: It beggars belief that business confidence is down, and to me this reflects major problems based on capacity and capability of our business leaders.
We are not mates with Australia
John Tamihere: Let's get the conclusion of this opinion piece out of the way, up front, and quickly. It's a myth that we are mates.
