Our homes can be our greatest investment and protecting our homes against climate change has become more important than ever.

Our changing climate poses risks to our natural and built environments. Swiss Re in a global analysis of insurance risk said to “expect climate risks to raise global property premiums by 33-41% between 2020 and 2040”. The potential increase was deemed a direct consequence of our changing climate.

Our Climate Insights property report provides easily understood information on change to risks for your current or a future property. The report includes robust and actionable information for residential property owners, tenants and investors to enhance their property’s climate resilience.

First Charges Laid over Wage Subsidy

Frans from Karapiro - Maungatautari

I know of many employers/businesses here in the Waikato who abused the Wage Subsidy when first introduced in 2020. I worked for one of them. Many got richer during & after getting the subsidy. I worked for one of them. Many laid staff off before or as soon as the Subsidy ran out.

Many got richer during & after getting the subsidy. I worked for one of them. Many laid staff off before or as soon as the Subsidy ran out. I know all about that as well because my employer laid me and another employee off as soon as subsidy expired! Anyone know of any employers abusing the wage subsidy last year or since, please do the right thing, Contact Ministry for Social Development and lodge your complaint. It's tax payers money that these employers got rich on while some of us, that were laid off, have and still are suffering while trying to survive on a benefit.

Join the rest of the motu on October 28 by taking part in our national earthquake drill and tsunami hīkoi, ShakeOut. Signing up only takes 2 minutes and when you do, you’ll be entered to win a personal emergency grab bag or civil defence wheelie bin kit from NZ Civil Defence.
ShakeOut takes place around the world to remind people of the right action to take during an earthquake:

DROP - down on your hands and knees. This protects you from falling but lets you move if you need to.

COVER - your head and neck (or entire body if possible) under a sturdy table or desk (if it is within a few steps of you). If there is no shelter nearby, cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

HOLD - on to your shelter (or your position to protect your head and neck) until the shaking stops. If the shaking shifts your shelter around, move with it.

Head to www.shakeout.govt.nz... to sign up today and get involved!
