Anyone (vaccinated and unvaccinated) can access the services of Parentline Manawatu.
Hancock Community House remains open to everyone.
Please ensure you wear a mask into the building and scan in or provide contact details for the contact box.
If you have any underlying health conditions or feel this will compromise your health please contact us to discuss alternative ways we might be able to engage with you.
Note - Please do not come to our services-
• If you or anyone in your household is currently experiencing any cold or flu symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, loss of smell, sneezing/runny nose or fever)

If your children’s behaviour is making life too stressful,
phone Parentline on 0800 432 6459 or 06 355 1655
We will get in contact as soon as possible. Our goal is to support you to put a parent plan together that works for you. There are lots of easy to use Triple P Positive Parenting strategies that can make this time so much easier,
and a lot less stressful!
Check out the page on our website called 'At Home With Kids During Covid-19.' You can find it at the top of the list under 'Groups and Counselling.' It has a wide variety of links which are still relevant.
