A basic, plain English guide that contains practical answers to questions about pregnancy and the law.
It covers questions like what are some of my options after a positive pregnancy test?, what healthcare can I get while I’m pregnant?, can I get time off work while I’m pregnant?, can I keep going to school if I am pregnant or have a baby? and much more.
The guide has been written with young pregnant people in mind, but information that you’ll find in here will be just as helpful for all whānau (including the other parent), advocates and the wider community.

This booklet is a must-have resource for those involved in local community centres, sports clubs or other community venues.
Updated in 2016 “Managing a Community Venue” provides information on a variety of topics within which community organisations must operate. Although it has been written for Wellington’s community centres, it contains useful and practical information for community organisations throughout New Zealand.
Notice: This resource contains out-of-date information. There has been a change in the law. A welfare guardian is unable to request the option of assisted dying for the person they have welfare guardianship of. This means that if you have applied to the court to appoint a welfare guardian, the person that the court appoints cannot request assisted dying on your behalf (s 18(g) Protection of Personal and Property Rights Act 1988 and s 34 End of Life Choice Act 2019).
This booklet provides information on how you may arrange to have your affairs managed if you lose your mental capacity.
You can do this by organising an enduring power of attorney for your personal care and welfare and for you property. The booklet also describes what happens if you don’t have an enduring power of attorney and lose mental capacity. It’s aimed at the general public, has a question and answer format and is useful for planning your future.
