Welcome to the NZCEH Website

The New Zealand Coalition to End Homelessness (NZCEH) believes every person has inherent dignity and value. Human rights recognise our feedom to make choices about our life and develop our potential as human beings. Owing to a range of circumstances and barriers, homeless people are excluded from these fundamental rights. Often their dignity and mana is diminished and they are not able to enjoy the benefits (economic, spiritual, social and cultural rights-education, employment good health and affordable, healthy housing) that underpin a fair and just society and are vital to the dignity, equality and security of each individual.

Homelessness can be defined as:

"Living situations where people with no other options to acquire safe and secure housing are:

  • without shelter
  • in temporary accommodaiton
  • sharing accommodation with a household or
  • living in uninhabitable housing"

Statistics New Zealand (2002).
