Share Your Experience

We all have the right to a decent home, grounded on Te Tiriti o Waitangi, and to be treated with dignity and respect: manaakitanga. The Human Rights Commission would like to hear your experiences to inform our Housing Inquiry.

We are currently looking at emergency and transitional accommodation and conditions for renters. We want to know how these issues affect people.

We can’t assist with individual housing issues through this inquiry. By sharing your story, you will help us identify and advocate for ways to improve housing in Aotearoa.

To share your story, experience or thoughts, fill in the form below.

You can also email [email protected], or call us on 0800 496 877.

The information you share will be used to inform the work and findings of the Human Rights Commission’s Housing Inquiry. If you give us consent, we may also publish your story on our website and in public statements. When you submit your story, you can choose to put your name to it or keep it anonymised.
