Te Toi Mahana is a Community Housing Provider (CHP) that was established on 1 August 2023 to take over the management of Wellington City Council’s social housing portfolio. Te Toi Mahana is dedicated to providing safe, secure and affordable housing in Wellington. With a portfolio of over 1900 homes and over 3000 tenants, we are committed to building strong, sustainable communities that support the wellbeing of our residents.

The name, Te Toi Mahana, was gifted to us from our Tākai Here (Mana Whenua) partners and means ‘the place of caring and nurturing, standing and belonging’.

We are the second largest housing provider in Wellington, after Kāinga Ora, and provide housing from Tawa through to Miramar. We deliver a critical service for Wellington and play a key role in the provision of good quality, below market rent, housing.
