Allergy New Zealand has been on the move!
After six years in our Grafton office, we are returning to a familiar neighbourhood – Mt Eden! A large verandaed villa at 581 Mt Eden Road will be our new Head Office.
But wait, there’s more …
We’re excited to announce that our new neighbours are Asthma New Zealand. Both organisations could see the benefits that a shared location would bring to our members and stakeholders.
Our office is open, but our landlines will not be operational for a couple more weeks. Please contact us by email instead – email@example.com
And as always, if you have an emergency, please dial 111.
