Earthquake Recovery Information Centre (ERIC)

The Earthquake Recovery Information Centre has closed but the team is still operational to help support people and businesses still recovering after the November 2016 earthquake.

ERIC site closure

Our one-stop-shop ERIC (Earthquake Recovery Information Centre) on Lambton Quay closed on Friday 12 May, 2017. It was opened to assist Government agencies to connect with quake affected people and businesses in Wellington.

We also managed the cordons and communications around the demolition of Tory Street car park and 61 Molesworth Street – both of which have been completed.

Our ERIC team will still be operational with future recovery planning, and you can get in touch with them through the contact details below.

Advice and support from the ERIC team

Our objective is to ensure information can be sourced from all the key agencies and experts to help businesses and individuals deal with post-quake issues quickly and more easily.

Our team can offer help and advice with:

  • support packages
  • insurance
  • earthquake preparedness,

  • and health and welfare.

The District Health Board is also assisting individuals who are suffering from distress following the earthquake with counselling facilitated through Victim Support. For more details, see: DHB-funded Counselling Information Sheet (278KB PDF).
