Hawkes Bay Civil Defence Emergency Management Group


Welfare includes the support of displaced people by assisting with the provision of shelter, accommodation, food, clothing and other financial assistance, counselling, personal support and advice to people affected or threatened by an emergency.  The work of welfare may commence before the impact of the event, and extend through any state of local emergency including the recovery phase.
