Nicole Nyx Simons

Ara Taiohi Role: Housing and Homelessness Sector 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 a deep passion to harness my own lived experiences, and expertise in the support sector to enable, uplift and inspire others to create value and change in meaningful ways. I am always looking for opportunities to collaborate, to connect and to find a heart-led way toward system change through amplifying lived experience voices and meaningful dialogue that can hold systems and people accountable for the improvement and the sustainment of wellbeing for everybody.
