(Source | Waatea News) The Canterbury WINZ regional commissioner is praising the efforts of Te Puni Kokori and Ngai Tahu to help quake survivors.

Sue Rissman says ministry staff and iwi members have joined Work and Income mobile teams traveling around the eastern suburbs.

She says the co-operation is working well, with help given for people to fill in Red Cross and Civil defence payment forms.

Sue Rissman says reports that some Maori were turned away from relief lines because they did not have two forms of identification were wrong, and people needing emergency financial assistance will get it regardless of whether they have ID or not.
