Partners Porirua is a Youth Service provider. We work with you if you are receiving Youth Payment or Young Parent Payment. We can also support you if your partner is receiving a main benefit.
If you're not currently on a benefit, we can help you find out if you're eligible.
How it works?
Partners Porirua will be your day-to-day contact and we'll help you find the right opportunities to best suit your needs and goals. Work and Income will make your payments. If you or your partner are on a benefit, we'll help you meet your responsibilities.
Types of payments you may receive:
Young Parent Payment – YPP
Young Parent Payment is a weekly payment for 16 to 18 year old parents who have dependent children, and are in need of financial assistance.
Youth Payment – YP
Youth Payment is a payment to young people aged 16 or 17 who are in need of financial assistance. This may be because, for example, you can’t live with your parents/guardian or get financial support from anyone.
It is very important to us that you are able stay in or get back into education, training or work-based learning to gain skills to help you have a better future.
We also have a number of courses that you can participate in such as our driving and parenting programmes.
