An additional 1,000 transitional housing places have been delivered under the Aotearoa New Zealand Homelessness Action Plan.

The majority of new transitional housing places (605 out of 1,000) are for families with children and 43 percent are newly constructed homes.

Transitional housing is a temporary solution for vulnerable individuals and whānau who otherwise may become homeless.

During their stay in transitional housing individuals and whānau receive wrap around support services from Community, Māori and Iwi providers to help them transition into long-term accommodation.
