Labour MP Kelvin Davis has offered his Whangarei office as a coordination centre for people needing help as a result of the recent flooding throughout Northland.
As from 9am Monday staff and volunteers will field calls to assist where possible.
"There will be people out there needing help but don't know who to turn to. It is the role of Members of Parliament to help where they can in such situations." Kelvin Davis says.
Mr Davis' office can be called if people need help to deal with government agencies, Councils, food banks or other.
A team is being coordinated to assist with small scale tidying up around Whangarei, but this may be extended if volunteer groups around the north can be coordinated.
Kelvin Davis' office number is 09 430 7922 or texts can be sent to 022 0616052, or he can be messaged via his Kelvin Davis MP Facebook page.
"In the aftermath of what the north has experienced over the last few days, it is important for people to know their elected representatives will put aside electioneering to help the community," says Kelvin Davis.
