Higher Ground


Cost of Attending the Higher Ground Programme

The programme is funded through contracts with the Waitemata District Health Board, Waikato District Health Board and the Ministry of Health. When a person comes into the programme they are, in many cases, eligible for a WINZ benefit. A portion of the  benefit is paid directly to Higher Ground as the clients contribution to the cost of their time in the programme. Normally a client makes no further payment to Higher Ground towards the cost of the Programme.

Where a client does not qualify for any WINZ benefit a weekly charge will be levied. Currently this is approximately $150 per week.
