As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to affect families, communities and countries around the world, Orange Sky continues to monitor how best to support the health, safety and well being of our friends, volunteers, supporters and staff.

We are proud and inspired by our team everyday and are committed to finding innovative ways to keep the most vulnerable people in our community connected over this time. Our volunteers have been doing such an amazing job keeping our friends connected during this difficult time. These are challenging times for us all as we come together to fight the spread of COVID-19. Now more than ever, we are reminded about the importance of keeping our community safe, as well as the care and compassion of the people around us. Our main responsibility at this time is to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our friends, volunteers, fellow service providers and the general public.

If you have been following us over the last few years, you will know that something like this will not stop us from delivering our mission to positively connect communities. We continue to be incredibly grateful for your support, as we work hard to deliver our mission and support our friends doing it tough.

To the New Zealand Community

The New Zealand Government has announced a mandatory seven day lockdown in Auckland, with the rest of the country under level 2 restrictions, to combat the spread of COVID-19. Orange Sky is an essential service, and as long as our service provider partners remain open and we have sufficient volunteers, we will continue to operate shifts in Auckland and Wellington. We have complete trust in our COVID-19 controls to ensure that volunteers and friends are safe, and that the likelihood of transmission on shift is significantly reduced. If you are looking to access our services, please visit our locations page for the most up to date information. As soon as we know that a shift is cancelled, we will update this page immediately. We’re thinking of everyone who has been impacted by this lockdown, and we hope we’re able to continue supporting the community during this time.
