In 2013, over three quarters (77%) reported having easy access to whānau support in times of need. However, an estimated 1,500 (6%) had difficulty getting help.



A smaller proportion of just over a half (53%) found it easy to get help with Māori cultural practices, with a fifth (19%) finding it hard or very hard. A further 7% reported not needing help.
