If she is placed there as emergency housing through WINZ she needs to contact them and ask to be moved. She really does need to contact the police however if she is feeling unsafe, as a olive complaint will help with getting an alternative place though WINZ
Customer
What does my daughter do to insure her safety is gonna be protected at all times with them people at the same motel making threats and stalking her at all hours of the night and day and waiting for her to return to the motel and my daughter won't at all because of them
Customer
she rings the police to make a complaint and rings winz to is that right I'll tell her as she's with her friends for her safety from the people at the motel and she's to scared to go get her stuff as they will be waiting and watching her

That is why she needs to contact the police. Although she doesn’t want to get the others upset, she has to do that
