Advocacy, giving people a helping hand.

The Peoples Advocacy Society (PAS) provides a FREE and independent service for any member of the Hawkes Bay Community.

We were established in 1977 and over the years have helped thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds by giving them advice, guidance and help.

Our trained advocates can help clients with a wide range of problems. Especially those who need advice and support when dealing with Government departments such as the Ministry of Social Development and WINZ.

We have advocates working in our offices in Napier and Hastings, but we are happy to help people throughout the Hawkes Bay.


Please feel free to contact us by phone, email or simply drop in.
