Understanding what assistance is available to you.
If you are not receiving the financial assistance you are legally entitled to.
Support in your relationship with Work and Income and other agencies.
Our mission is to work with people to empower and assist them to improve their health, welfare and general standard of living.

Happy Waves is a local youth led project, with content contributed to by Hawke's Bay and CHB youth.
We seek out stories in our community of people that are doing good stuff, often without even knowing it !
Our team interview them, grab a few photos and it then goes to print in our own newspaper, circulated into the community, now into it's 3rd seasonal edition.

Each of our team gain skill around media, but also in multiple other ways as they connect with the community around them, working as a team and gaining tons of confidence to help them in their future careers.

We are proudly supported by our local Councils and funders to get the Happy Bay News out into our community.
