We are taking practical steps to protect our clients, staff, families and the wider community from the spread of COVID-19 under the New Zealand Government COVID-19 Protection Framework (currently RED).  We are able to meet with fully vaccinated clients in our offices by appointment only as we are currently operating with half our team in the office and half our team from home.  We will make alternative arrangements (phone, email & video conference) for clients not fully vaccinated, or not willing to provide their vaccination status.  Appointments are required to be made in advance.  A face covering is required to be worn while visiting our offices.
