  • Abbeyfield NZ Inc

    Abbeyfield New Zealand – supported living for older people

    Abbeyfield's uniqueness stems from their focus on housing for older people. While residents over 65 years are eligible, the majority of their residents are in their 70s and 80s. Abbeyfield is a home and an answer to the needs of companionship, affordability and practical support to enable older tenants to live independently, with dignity.

    Established in New Zealand in 1991 they are part of the international Abbeyfield movement. There are 13 houses around the country, one under construction, and more in the planning stages.

    All residents are tenants of Abbeyfield homes and each residence is classified as a boarding house. Home to mainly single residents, Abbeyfield homes are conveniently located large houses with 10 to 14 studios. An Abbeyfield House aims to be ‘a typical house in a typical street’ offering companionship, independence and support in rental accommodation at a price affordable to the majority of older people.

CHT intends playing an active role in the city addressing many of the current housing issues, with land subdivision and building techniques, funding packages or support structures for families as they work toward owning their own homes. We think there’s a role for a community-based honest broker working with all sectors. The solution to affordable housing is a complex one and will require relooking at all current structures and searching for new ways of getting families into their own homes.

Established in late 2016, we are a limited partnership between New Zealand charitable trust, The Selwyn Foundation, and Auckland Council.

    We aim to provide outstanding social housing for older Aucklanders, with customer service excellence a priority. Our focus is on providing safe, secure and affordable long-term tenancies for senior citizens and creating positive and inclusive communities that support people to live well in the comfort and security of their home.

    As an independent limited partnership, Haumaru Housing invests in communities, in terms of people and properties, retaining all surpluses to benefit older adults in local neighbourhoods. Our service is as much about enhancing people’s wellbeing, as it is about providing housing. We wish to create age-friendly and caring communities, where social isolation and loneliness are eliminated, and to develop our navigator role to help tenants access the social, health, advocacy and budgetary advice services they need to improve their wellbeing.

  • He Korowai Trust

    Based in Kaitaia the Trust combines a consortium of Māori organisations working collectively to improve the quality of life to whānau providing a range of services including budgeting, whānau assistance, health and social housing.

    Housing problems in the community remain difficult. They include a chronic shortage of single men’s accommodation, no HCNZ or private rental stock. Many whānau are unable to own a home through borrowing so they opt to build makeshift shacks on Māori land or to re-occupy previously abandoned unhealthy dwellings, like cow sheds, resulting in overcrowding, cross infection and recurring respiratory problems.Trustees have developed a comprehensive housing strategy which is moving whānau into safer improved living environments and improving quality of life.

Everyone, regardless of income or economic resource, is entitled to this right, without distinction, exclusion or restriction on the basis of any specific characteristic such as race, religion, age, [dis]ability, or gender.

    Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei is the mana whenua of the Auckland Central area. We have a rich history in Tāmaki Makaurau (Auckland) dating back to the very beginnings of human Māori migration from Hawaiiki. Our more recent occupation in Tāmaki Makaurau began in the17th century when Te Tāōū, a hapu (sub-tribe) of Ngāti Whātua, under the leadership of Tuperiri, campaigned against, and overrode the local tribe. Tuperiri remained, consolidating the position of Ngāti Whātua in Tāmaki Makaurau.

    As such, every member (approximately 5000) of Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei can trace their whakapapa (genealogy) to Tuperiri and are descended from the three hapu (sub-tribes): TeTāōū, Ngāoho and Te Uringutu, collectively referred to as Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei.

    SHAs will be selected by Tauranga City Council in areas where there is a clear demand for housing, and where there is already suitable infrastructure or there are plans for it to be built. When recommending SHAs, Council may include criteria specifying maximum building height, the minimum number of dwellings and a measure for affordable houses. The Council will negotiate housing affordability outcomes on a development by development basis. Some developments will lend themselves to delivering more affordable housing prices than other developments.

    Previously the Tauranga Community Housing Trust, Tawanui Community Housing - Whare Kaitiaki, was founded in 2003 in response to concern about the growing lack of affordable, appropriate housing for local disabled people. The Trust operates in the Tauranga area and Western Bay of Plenty Region and now assists a broad range of people, mostly working with individuals and families with complex health, disability, financial and/or social needs in addition to a serious housing need.

    Tauranga has been described as being one of the least affordable cities in New Zealand to live, both in terms of renting and home ownership due to the high housing costs relative to income. As a housing provider and landlord TCHT is helping to address this issue through providing housing at a social rather than market rent to those who need it, both in properties owned by the trust itself and through leasing and managing properties owned by the private sector.

  • Te Tumu Kāinga (Te Tumu Paeroa)

    Te Tumu Kāinga seeks housing project partnerships that deliver quality, sustainable, social and affordable housing outcomes for Māori.

    We will consider all housing projects and initiatives, including large-scale urban developments and smaller (often rural Māori-land based) housing projects.

Our approach to community housing projects recognises that a quality building is only one part of a successful social or affordable housing project and that wraparound support is often required for community members to maximise and sustain holistic well-being outcomes.
