Christchurch residents whose health and wellbeing continue to be affected by the smells coming from the fire-damaged wastewater treatment plant will receive more targeted support.
On 3 August, Christchurch City Council committed a further $180,000 to provide more support for schools, and targeted help for residents still affected by odours from the wastewater treatment plant.
The new wellbeing response plan includes:
Extended support for schools and early learning centres, including those in the Southshore and South New Brighton areas, so they can provide activities and events to help children and their families manage the effects of the odour.
Discretionary funding to support people affected by the smell to access health and wellbeing supports.
Community support package payments will close on Friday 12 August, as the update has plateaued. Out-of-zone applicants can contact CommunityGrants@ccc.govt.nz until Wednesday 31 August to be considered for a support payment.
