Nicole Nyx Simons

Ara Taiohi Role: Homelessness Lead, Te Ngākau Kahukura

Heart-centered, Lived Experience & Peer Support champion, Project Manager, Mental Health, Addictions, Homelessness and Rainbow advocate.

The kaupapa that drives my practice comes from harnessing and role modelling my own lived experiences and using these to create value and change in meaningful ways. I hold the belief that the experiences people endure through life, enable us to be experts in our own lives. I am incredibly passionate about harnessing the voices and experiences of others and providing opportunities through co-design practices and collaboration to raise awareness, deliver messages of change and hold systems accountable for the improvement and sustainment of wellbeing.
