The quakes didn't stop us but our cash flow crisis might...

TPA are asking for donation to help keep services running.

Tenants Protection Association are asking tenants  for their help.  Helen Gatonyi says "the tables have turned and we are now asking tenants and other users of our services if they can help us as we face losing our home and closing the doors until we can find enough funding to continue our services"

Today, TPA have released the following plea.

Are you one of the many thousands of tenants or hundreds of community organisations who have used our services over the past 32 years?  We are asking for your help now.  We are facing a cash shortfall, we want to keep the roof over our own head and to continue to operate into the future.  This is a tricky time for us right now and we sincerely need your help.

Have we helped you?  Are you able to make a donation (nothing is too little) – if every tenant who we have helped gave just $3 we would well and truly reach our target.  Or perhaps you would like to make a regular gift to us.  You can do this via our webpage

Are you one of the thousand people who view our webpage each month? Are you one of the four to six thousand people we have listened to and spoken to in the past year?  Are you one of the many people who had their eviction prevented, tenancy stabilised and were able to stay in your home?  If this is you we need your donations now.


Is Tenants Protection Association an organisation you would like to see continue to operate in your community?  You can choose to make this happen.  You can say we want this group here, we like what they do and we support them.  Please do this with your dollars


Donations can be made via our website  you can post donations to us at 3/575 Colombo Street Christchurch or you can drop into our office at any time to make a cash donation.
