Comments

5.       The implementation of the new Community Grants Policy commenced on 1 July 2015. The policy supports each local board to adopt a grants programme for 2015/2016 and the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board adopted its grants programme on 21 May 2015 (see Attachment A).

6.       The local board grants programme sets out:

·        local board priorities

·        lower priorities for funding

·        exclusions

·        grant types, the number of grant rounds and when these will open and close

·        any additional accountability requirements.

7.       The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board will operate two local grant rounds for this financial year.

8.       The new community grant programmes have been extensively advertised through the new council grant webpage, local board webpages, local board e-newsletters and Facebook pages, council publications, radio, local newspapers and community networks. Staff have also conducted a series of public workshops in local board areas, which have been attended by approximately 1000 people across the Auckland region.

9.       The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board has allocated $80,000 to local board grants for 2015/16.

10.     Forty-seven applications were received in this round of which twelve were multi-board applications (see Attachment B).

11.     Successful applicants are required to thank the local board for their support by using the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board logo on printed materials. This is in addition to accountability measures as stated in the local board grant programme 2015/2016 and community grant policy.

12.     The board is requested to note that section 50 of the Community Grants Policy states “We will also provide feedback to unsuccessful grant applicants about why they have been declined, so they will know what they can do to increase their chances of success next time.”

Consideration

Local Board views and implications

13.     Local boards are responsible for the decision-making and allocation of local board community grants. The Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board is required to fund, part-fund or decline these grant applications against the local board priorities identified in the local board grant programme.

Māori impact statement

14.     The provision of community grants provides opportunities for all Aucklanders to undertake projects, programmes, activities that benefit a wider range of individuals and groups, including Maori. As a guide for decision-making, in the allocation of community grants, the new community grants policy supports the principle of delivering positive outcomes for Maori.

Implementation

15.     The allocation of grants to community groups is within the adopted Long Term Plan 2015-2025 and local board agreements.

16.     Following the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board allocating funding for round one local grants, Commercial and Finance staff will notify the applicants of the local board decision.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Kidz@one 2016 School Holiday Care costs

5A Waipuna Rd, Mt Wellington Auckland

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

45 -50

AUDIENCE SIZE

Audience of 150+

MAORI OUTCOMES

No

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - The venue has wheelchair access and volunteer support. Care givers and parents are welcome.

PROJECT RATIONALE

Local communities include several low decile schools and a significant concentration of 5-12 year olds who need school holiday care. Kidz@one is a 5day 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday social service to their families, especially working parents, in an area deprived of community facilities.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Local children gain safe, educational, healthy entertainment, exercise and visit attractions and parks which they would otherwise not experience from a convenient, easily accessible location. With sufficient funding, consumable resources can be restocked, more ambitious techniques learned and different attractions visited.  Outcomes include respite for parents, enriched experiences, enhanced socialisation, creativity and coordination skills plus enlarged world views amongst attendees 

Simple feedback surveys which canvas parental reactions and direct verbal responses from children and parents are likely to record perceived quality improvement at each holiday, especially among repeat attendees.  With assured, improved funding, MCCT's team can improve  these experiences in future.

Children come together, with a specialist teacher, for one day each week. Together they engage in differentiated, strength-based learning experiences to further develop their gifts and talents and a greater understanding of themselves.

FUNDING FOR

Subsidies to support gifted children to access MindPlus Auckland Central, providing for their specific learning needs. We aim to achieve equity of access for children of diverse backgrounds to access our programme. Many of the students that benefit from our programme would not be able to attend without subsidies. Each year we have students on waitlists due to lack of funding. These are kids who need our programme, but their families are not in a financial position to contribute the full fee and will not be able to attend until we secure funding to provide them with a subsidy.

MAORI OUTCOMES

No

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Our classes are located at host schools in New Zealand and meet the standards required by the Ministry of Education for people with disabilities.

PROJECT RATIONALE

We know through a conservative estimate based on international research that approximately 5% of the population is gifted. That is approximately 24,000 New Zealand children who may require additional support to maximise their potential. We currently reach 600 gifted children. We know there are many more students out there who need our support and the opportunity to discover their potential through additional learning that complements the New Zealand Curriculum. 

A Martin Jenkins Scoping report completed in February 2014 demonstrates three major reasons, based on delivery and excellence gaps, why funding is important for gifted children, particularly low socio–economic areas. 

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Success is measured by intellectual and personal growth and development of students’ gifts and talents. Students emulate the skills of expert disciplinarians and actively contribute towards solving significant and complex issues. Students become more self-aware, confident, engaged, motivated and resilient and are able to manage self through deeper understanding of how they learn. This leads to better engagement, participation and positive contributions to the community.

 Our vision is for students to be:

Cognitively, creatively, motivationally, emotionally, socially, ethically, and practically high-functioning learners, ready and able to make a positive contribution to their whanau, schools, and communities.

MAUNGAKIEKIE-TĀMAKI  LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

1.     strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate

2.     celebrate and contribute

We exist to serve New Zealand’s gifted young people. We can best do this by maximising their potential through recognition, access and support. Our priority focuses are to see that all young gifted New Zealanders are recognised and celebrated and have equitable access to quality gifted education and a network of support. Students discover what it means to be gifted, how they can use their gifts, talents and exceptional abilities to provide leadership and actively and purposefully contribute to their communities. Another benefit is less money spent on deficit areas to these children such as justice/youth development interventions.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Art Exhibition at The Good, The Bad with an emerging/established NZ artist

PROJECT SUMMARY

Create an exhibition at The Good, The Bad for 2 weeks with an emerging/established NZ artist to create new art works informed by working with the community. Wherever possible, the community will be involved with idea conception, participation (through workshops or creation of new work) to strengthen their connection with the art to be displayed. Working with an emerging/established artist will create a high-standard of art works made, exposing the community to relevant and high-quality art.

FUNDING FOR

- Curatorial fee to ensure all aspects of the exhibition are planned for and accomplished (ie. timelines are established and met, managing artist and their communication with the community, organising marketing/promotion etc.). 

- Artist materials as an incentive for artist involvement and to create high-quality work.

- Venue hire for The Good, The Bad gallery space

PROJECT LOCATION

The Good, The Bad (Tāmaki ’s first art gallery) – 37A Mayfair Place, Glen Innes, Auckland

PROJECT DATES:

01/12/2015 - 31/03/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - This project will be promoted using modern and traditional techniques to reach those who are internet savvy and also those who aren't on the internet (older people, those with disabilities) - via website promotion, utilizing gallery and council mailing lists, social media (facebook, instagram), leaflet drops and posters placed around the community and on noticeboards, school visits, newspaper articles and radio interviews etc.   Through the use of the internet, promotion of this project will reach tens of thousands of people local and globally.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

Through logo placement on printed and online material, invitation for local board members to attend the opening night and have an opportunity to address the audience, acknowledgement in any articles for newspaper and interviews for radio, word-of-mouth.

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

50 - including the artist and the community participants

AUDIENCE SIZE

500-750 people to attend the exhibition. 50,000+ to receive exhibition notification via online exposure ie. social media networks

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - Possibly. Depending on the communication between the artist and the community and the ideas selected the art exhibition could revolve around portraying Maori social, economic, or cultural well-being themes or include art work made involving Maori traditions such as patterns/carving.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - People with disabilities will be able to contribute and participate during the time when the artist is working with the community in the concept and creation phase of the project. Since the art gallery is located above a flight of stairs, people with physical disabilities may have trouble viewing the work created but the work will be available online to view so they can still see the art works made with help from their input.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The Good, The Bad is the first gallery in Tāmaki  and is vital for growing the understanding and appreciation of art in this area. Art has never had it's own dedicated space to nurture and encourage art appreciation so this project is definately needed! The aim to work with an emerging/established NZ artist will expose the community to a high-standard and quality of art work similar to if a school visit from a Warriors or All Black player. 

 This project will help to raise the profile of the new gallery AND the area of Tāmaki  as a thriving arts community.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Benefits:

- Increased visitor numbers to Glen Innes - supporting local businesses through customers

- Raising public profile and awareness of this community - changing perceptions of the community positively and creating pride within the community. 

- Strengthen community pride - by working with the community allowing them to contribute to the outcome of the exhibition. 

- Strengthen community relations - the exhibition is a great way for locals to meet and build relationships through workshops and the opening night celebration.

Achievement of these benefits can be determined by community participation and visitor numbers to the gallery during the exhibition dates.

AMOUNT

 If curator/artist decides to sell the art work then the artist will receive 100% of the sales and an amount cannot be estimated. The incentive to attract an emerging/established artist since they are getting no artist fee is that they will have a materials budget and they will keep any sales of art for themselves. This is a fair structure for outcomes that will benefit the artist, the curator, and the local boards community outcomes.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Community Advocates Programme

PROJECT SUMMARY

The project is to recruit and train a team of Community Advocates, comprising of survivors of family violence. With extensive two weeks training, and lived experienced, the Community Advocates will provide community-based support to women and families who are facing medium to low risk level domestic/family violence with the supervision of experienced case-workers. The project aims at providing opportunities for community engagement and contribution for survivors, supporting their process of self-empowerment, confidence building and recovery. At the same time, survivors are able to engage in individual and collective action towards the address and elimination of domestic/family violence within the community.

FUNDING FOR

We are requesting for funding towards the training efforts as well as subsidies towards reimbursement for the advocates for the expenses accrued in the course of their outreach and intervention, such as mileage when accompanying service users to appointments.

PROJECT LOCATION

3 Cardwell Street, Onehunga, Auckland

PROJECT DATES:

PROJECT RATIONALE

From our 20 years of experience we have seen many migrant and refugee women and children from Asian, Middle Eastern and African backgrounds in vulnerable and high-risk situations. Their experience of disadvantage is allied to poor integration, language skills and lack of understanding of the new home environment. This is further exacerbated by culturally sanctioned abusive practices and domestic violence - including physical, psychological, sexual and financial abuse as well as extreme isolation brought about through physical and economic control over women and their children. Therefore there is a need for timely, accessible and culturally appropriate domestic violence support services.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

By working targeting former clients as Community Advocates, this project will empower the women, giving them the opportunity to help others who are experiencing similar situations as they did.  This al enables the advocates to contribute meaningfully to their local communities.  In the long-term we expect to see more cohesive, vibrant and diverse communities across Auckland where even vulnerable members are valued.  Additionally, the training and experiences the community advocates receive will be a valuable foundation to assist them into more stable employment or higher learning.  We will use evaluation forms and regular monitoring to measure outcomes.

LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

MAUNGAKIEKIE-TĀMAKI  LOCAL BOARD PRIORITIES

1.     strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate

2.     celebrate and contribute

A foundation of this project is the participation of women, especially young women and single mothers who volunteer their time and skills in mobilising social change in the community.  Through the increased awareness in the local community about the culturally-specific needs of Asian, African and Middle Eastern communities, the wider community will indirectly benefit from this project. For instance, our Community Advocates are empowered to contribute more meaningfully in their local communities. Additionally, they receive working experiences which would assist them with any future pursuits; helping Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  to thrive and adding to the social and economic prosperity of the area.

PROJECT TITLE

PHAB Youth and Young Adult groups

PROJECT SUMMARY

PHAB is the sector leader for youth with disabilities in the wider disability community. Our core business is our network of 22 weekly social groups that meet throughout Auckland. We currently have 3 groups meeting in Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  area.

We currently have wait-lists for all 3 of these groups.

FUNDING FOR

An Auckland Council grant would enable us to further develop PHAB and reduce our ever increasing wait-lists. We would

be able to offer PHAB services to more young people by employing new youth workers and volunteers for the groups. We are also looking for funding for mobility transport for our young people to get to our groups.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - PHAB prides itself on being a free programme for people with disabilities that eases the pressure of families having to find the funds to support access to social and recreational activities but also gives the young people the ability to independently choose to attend our programmes without financial constraints being an issue.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The need for PHAB is proven by our increasing waiting lists. Every group within PHAB has a waiting list of young people hoping to access our services.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

PHABs primary purpose is creating integrated, inclusive communities that value and respect our young disabled people as active participants. By supporting young people with personal development and leadership opportunities they gain their independence increasing their confidence to take active roles within their communities. By supporting young people to build their skills base they gain confidence in the contribution they can make to society, communities come to value individuals for their abilities. As the young people gain in independence and confidence the strain on their families also lessens. We also provide employment opportunities both for disabled and non disabled people.

PROJECT TITLE

Upgrading Outdoor Area to meet H&S Requirements & Supporting Families

PROJECT SUMMARY

We provide Education for our Young Children &Adults, taking on responsibilities/tasks needed to License Sessions and maintain a safe/compliant environment.  Key members/officeholders are leaving this year (moving/school etc) which will impact our team heavily.  We need assistance to fund the upgrade of our Playground Safety Surfacing, as well as support to License Sessions and meet all areas of compliance.  We already work hard on raising necessary funds to maintain a safe environment and have recently used existing funds to repair/maintain play structures, plus need to upgrade the Safety Surfacing. We need support from grants to assist providing for our Families/Community, otherwise we will need to rely more on members/volunteers to work harder.

FUNDING FOR

To upgrade Safety Matting which is unsafe & creating hazards for our children.  We need to meet NZ Standards, Licensing Requirements/Legislation - most importantly a safe place for children to explore/enjoy their environment without hazards in their way.  With key members leaving soon, we also need support with Licensing and meeting Legislative deadlines.  While our new families settle in and build up a sense of belonging/wellbeing within our Playcentre Community, and gain training levels to self-license again. We have raised $6,000 ourselves for Repair/Maintenance done recently, but need support to complete this 2nd Stage, plus support with Sessions through this difficult period.

Yes - We will continue to promote our playcentre within the Community as best we can, and as much as we can. This is however an additional cost for us - and we work hard to come up with ways and network with other Community Groups to 'promote and advertise' playcentre within our Community.   Signage, Flyers etc are costly, but we fundraise and work with other playcentres to combine Promotional Efforts - however we also need to maintain a Safe Environment and meet minimum Licensing requirements, which adds extra work and cost.  Support through this Funding Opportunity with Council will help our families tremendously.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We would acknowledge support of the Local Board within our Minutes, Newsletters, Reports etc - which are circulated to our Playcentre Families, Local and wider communities - through communication tools for sharing information with our Association and other Playcentre Families locally, and around the Country.

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

50+ ... Currently a roll of 21 Children (but licensed up to 30 Children), plus their Parents/Caregiver, plus Extended Whanau, plus Support members

AUDIENCE SIZE

We are licensed for a max of 30 Children per session; plus their Parent/Caregivers and Extended Whanau

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - Our Project or Services do not target Maori 'specifically', however we are inclusive of all Cultures and ethnic groups, and have a commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and supporting Maori Whanau.   Our playcentre is supported by Te Kimiora o Tāmaki  through our affiliation to Tāmaki  Playcentres Association Inc.- the Association's Bi-cultural Partner. Our close relationship with Te Kimiora strengthens and empowers our Whānau Māori ‘weaving’ their journey of Te Ao Māori in Playcentre

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Playcentre is inclusive of all Abilities and Disabilities.  Our playcentre members/volunteers work together as a Group to provide a safe learning environment for all members, and provide safe Accessibility to and from our Building/Premises, meeting legislation when and where required.  Our Indoor and Outdoor Learning environments are designed for all developmental stages, and are adapted / enhanced when and where required to meet the needs of our Families.

PROJECT RATIONALE

Through the continued participation of the families within our local community. Our enrolled families and Association are committed to meeting needs of our Community - providing Free educational sessions/programmes for both preschool children and their parent/caregiver/whaanau. For many of our families' life in itself is a struggle, however they want the best for their children. For us, Playcentre is where parents can get many ideas on how to support their child's learning, learn essential knowledge on guiding children positively, and be empowered to be their child's first educator.  Providing a Safe/Supportive environment is paramount to our ability to provide this.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Our Community will benefit from our ability to continue providing a safe and supportive environment (venue) for all families. We will continue to work towards opening additional sessions and building relationships with other community organisations. Playcentre supports the whole family and does this by providing sessions locally, focused on play and whaanau involvement.  Building Stronger Communities

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Facilitation of peer support groups for grieving children, requested by schools, with parental/caregiver permission

PROJECT SUMMARY

As an established provider of community assistance provided principally by volunteers, in 2016 we are expanding the number of groups which we facilitate (hoping to assist approximately 75 grieving children/young persons to get their lives back on track). This is in response to increased demand in 2015 from Principals and Counsellors in schools which we have not had sufficient co-ordinator hours or volunteers to meet.

To do this we have commenced the process of advertising for an assistant co-ordinator to share in facilitating groups and in training further voluntary adult facilitators to enable them to facilitate peer support groups (two for each group).

FUNDING FOR

Helping to establish the new assistant co-ordinator by supplying registration, supervision, laptop, pre-paid mobile phone and some professional development training

Continuing to support the primary co-ordinator with payment for registration, supervision,  and some professional development training 

Providing books and stationery required for an increased number of Seasons peer support groups and for volunteer training

Mascots for an increased number of children/young persons expected to attend the Seasons Programme

PROJECT LOCATION

In schools in school time. The majority of schools in 2015 were in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  Local Board Area, some were in Mangere-Otahuhu or Otara-Papatoetoe, odd ones elsewhere.

PROJECT DATES:

02/11/2015 - 28/10/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - Seasons Onehunga takes every opportunity to engage with schools and the wider community. The Co-ordinator liaises with school principals, social workers, counsellors, teachers and parents who request that the Seasons programme be run in their schools, to explain what Seasons offers. She promotes Seasons to community groups and, with the committee, arranges fundraising activities (e.g. Good in the Hood) with reports in the local newspaper. Since attending Peer Support groups and what is discussed there must remain confidential, (the one exception to confidentiality is if safety is compromised), Seasons is unable to provide photographs of participants or any personal identification.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

- By public announcement at any fundraising events, such as at concerts

- In print in pamphlets giving information about the Seasons programme

- By inviting local board members to any fundraising event.

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

28 adults, (2 paid, c. 26 volunteer facilitators and committee)

AUDIENCE SIZE

75 children/young persons

MAORI OUTCOMES

No

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - The Seasons peer support groups are held in schools, which have well-established provision of access for people with disabilities.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The fact that principals, social workers at various agencies, counsellors, teachers and parents across Auckland make contact with Seasons Onehunga to request that the peer group programme be run in schools, and are increasingly doing so, demonstrates the need for this initiative. Teaching and counselling staff identify children and adolescents whose ability to learn, and/or outlook on life and/or behaviour is being adversely affected by the experience of grief or loss, and seek assistance to enable them to make positive change in their lives and take up the advantages of an education.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Schools provide their frank view of the programme and its effects: please see attached examples. 

Each participant gives feedback on an age-appropriate, anonymous evaluation form e.g. A 16 year old: “I rate the course at 10 out of 10. Seasons opened my eyes. Someone else had similar feelings to me!” 

An intermediate school student 'I know how to control my anger and keep safe” and "It was good having people that would listen . . . and letting everything out!” 

All feedback is considered carefully so that the programme can be constantly refined to be as effective as possible.

1.     strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate

2.     celebrate and contribute

The Seasons programme assists children and young persons from the full diversity of cultures, beliefs and socio-economic circumstances, who are experiencing significant grief and loss as a result of missing someone important in their life, once again to participate, celebrate and contribute positively at school, at home and in the community.  Children who have been detrimentally affected by grief's disruption to a normal living pattern are enabled to feel less isolated, learn healthy ways to grieve, recognise the confusing and overwhelming emotions that they feel, and find their strengths, safe places to go to and safe people to talk to.

Yes, most importantly we need to retain our co-ordinator and get her some help. The project would fall apart without the co-ordinator, who trains and supports the volunteers, and facilitates some of the peer support groups.

We should prefer funding in this order:

1.     to continue to support the co-ordinator: supervision, registration, professional. development   = $  930.00

2.     to establish the extra co-ordinator: phone, laptop, supervision, registration, profressional development  = $1925.00    Subtotal $2855.00

3.     to provide stationery, books, mascots, for facilitator training and peer support groups  = $1722.00                  Subtotal $4577.00

4.     to provide hospitality for facilitator training and peer support groups = $250                                                      Total       $4827.00

Operating LGBTI Telephone Helpline for Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  

PROJECT SUMMARY

Promoting our specialist gender identity/sexual orientation service to the people of Franklin and making our 0800 service available, weekdays 9am - 9pm and weekends 6pm - 9pm. Self harm / suicide rates are highest amongst LGBTI-identifying groups and low self-esteem is crippling both to the person and their family/community. Confident and self-affirming LGBTI people are an asset to their local communities.

FUNDING FOR

We have factored together 4% of the cost of funding the 0800 service, plus the cost of brochures sent to agencies in your area, based on our recorded call volumes from  Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  area in the past year. Our 2015 call volumes are significantly larger than our 2014 year, which itself was a record year for OUTLine.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Our telephone service is highly accessible to people with most disabilities. We also offer a professional counselling service accessible both face-to-face from a mobility-friendly building and by Skype, which can support even hearing-impaired clients.

PROJECT RATIONALE

LGBTI people experience between 1.8 and 12 times greater risk of suicide and self-harm than other people in the community. Self-esteem is proven to be low and the consequences are harmful to the local community as a whole

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

LGBTI people feeling more able to participate in the local community, more enthusiastic to work and form aspirational goals,

especially young people.

PROJECT RATIONALE

This is  prime council real estate that is currently a waste area and can be turned into reserve of native trees. The space needs to be cleaned up as it has become a place that has attracted rubbish. In May this year with the local council Facility manager permission, we started by removing the rubbish on a regular basis and planted a few trees, but we need help to make the area attractive for community use. We are willing to keep an eye on the area and keep it clean.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

A space people are proud of, less chance of vandalism and rubbish collecting, a sense of community ownership. The return of native trees to the area for people and birds. A place for people to hangout. A resource for the Community Centre to have indoor and out door space available for local groups. I have attached some photos of the area and the clean up we did in May this year, plus landscape plan. To know this has been achieved can be seen by the success of the tree planting and use of the area by the community.

Funding for Christmas Party

PROJECT SUMMARY

Each year we provide all the families from the community, that we work with, a Christmas party, where we give the families a box of gifts that we've obtained via donations (some were personally funded the previous team leader) and lunch.  This year we would like to add a bouncy castle and face painting to the mix. Last year we gave gifts to more than 100 children at this Party.

FUNDING FOR

The purchase of food and gifts for the Christmas Party and the bouncy castle and face paints.  We will be getting volunteers to help us.

PROJECT LOCATION

4A Court Crescent, Panmure, Auckland

PROJECT DATES:

08/12/2015 - 12/01/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We will put in under "latest news"  on our website, but it will not be an invite to the general public as it is for the families that

we work with.  Some families invite other family members to join them.

LOCAL BOARD ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

We have the Auckland Council icon on our website and also their/your name on our financial statements as having financed us

us.  If you would prefer that we put the local Board's name on our financial statements (which are published on the Charities Commission website) we will be more than happy to do this.

ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS

AUDIENCE SIZE

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - More than 63% of our clients are Maori. By providing the help that we do, our aim is to improve family (Maori) social, economic and cultural well-being. A significant part of our core focus is Social wellbeing with a goal of also achieving Economic Wellbeing. We have 2 Maori family workers who also take a group of children to Kapa Haka practices weekly and our Parenting Program, while accommodating other ethnicities is also focused on Maori Families as the name "Building Awesome Whanau" indicates.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Currently we do not run any women's programs, but in the past (up to last year) we had a participant that was visually impaired, another one (in her 70's) used a walker, another would arrive in her scooter to help out with us as a volunteer in our lifeskills clubs and a fourth was in a wheelchair, while a fifth was intellectually disadvantaged (special needs). 4 of the ladies attended (with other women and we would always pick up the visually impaired girl and the lady in the wheelchair) until the programs ended, but after a while it became too hard to bring the lady in the wheelchair as our wheelchair access was too steep and our family workers facilitating the program did not have the strength to push her up the ramp as she did not have the power steering. Improving the incline of the ramp is another project we would like to look at in the future. Should we run programs of this nature again, the programs, as before, will be open to anyone.

PROJECT RATIONALE

We do this every year as part of our service to the Community and the families that we work with.  As we do go the extra mile in our work

in showing care and concern for the families that we work with, we also want to put money where our mouth is and provide the families with a fun day and the children with good memories.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The community benefits are associated with the core services or activities of the Trust. We maintain client files and we set goals when we begin working with the clients. Meeting the goals that we have set will be an indication of benefits received by the client. Also we receive feedback from the schools, agencies and the clients themselves. Please refer to our references for more details around this.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

Information and Advisory Support Services for people with Muscular Dystrophy - Auckland 

PROJECT SUMMARY

The MDA’s information and advisory services aim to assist people living with disabling neuromuscular conditions, including families/whānau, to have access to up-to-date and relevant information and advice to meet their personal and welfare needs 

We seek to provide relevant, up-to-date information and advice to people seeking assistance on any of the over 40 neuromuscular conditions. This will include advice regarding where and how to access other appropriate support services.

FUNDING FOR

Muscular Dystrophy Association of New Zealand (MDA) is requesting for a grant to assist with the costs of reprinting our specialist  booklets and brochures for education of individuals and their families diagnosed with Neuromuscular conditions, schools, and health professionals. It is our goal to provide the latest expert advice to our members and those who work with them.

Members are across greater Auckland area.

MAORI OUTCOMES

No

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - People who suffer from Muscular Dystrophy in any way will benefit from this project through the booklets and brochures.  The DMD and CMT guides are international best practice guides, based on the latest scientific research. Given the developments in genomic research generally and particularly in relation to these neuromuscular conditions we need to provide our members with the most up to date versions of these documents.  These guides provide detailed information about the conditions and what the latest research suggests about check-ups (such as heart and lung function), how best to maintain mobility and function and aspects of the condition that parents may need to be aware of such as emotional and behavioural challenges.

These booklets are invaluable for our members. In a recent detailed study that the MDA commissioned (conducted by independent research company, Point Research) to evaluate the services we offer our members identified the information we provide as being the service that makes the most difference to their lives. Currently we have no copies of either of these essential guides in an appropriate booklet form. 

The member benefit flyer informs members about which organisations offer discounts and services. Please see below link to the DMD family guide http://www.mda.org.nz/media/1209/Duchene%20Muscular%20Dystrophy%20FamilyGuide%20March2010.pdf

PROJECT RATIONALE

We propose to meet the needs of all New Zealanders living with neuromuscular conditions. There are currently 1222 people with a neuromuscular condition who are MDA members, and, based on a systematic review of the prevalence of neuromuscular conditions internationally, the total population in New Zealand is estimated to stand at 4400.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

People with unanswered questions about neuromuscular conditions have somewhere to go to. People who have a neuromuscular condition are fully informed about their condition and to empower themselves to have other needs met and to ask for other help that they now know is available. To educate people with neuromuscular conditions about opportunities  available to them. MDA is strongly linked to a network of mainstream agencies and NGOs addressing the needs of people affected by neuromuscular conditions. The MDA undertakes an annual survey of its members perceptions and experiences of its services, including information services.

1.     a healthy natural environment enjoyed by our communities, strong and thriving communities that are enabled to participate, celebrate and contribute

 

The MDA is a New Zealand not for profit which provides information and support to the people affected by neuromuscular conditions. We have branches throughout the country which are supported by the National Office based in Auckland. 

Neuromuscular conditions are genetic and primarily result in muscle wastage and can be devastating for those diagnosed and their families. Symptoms can appear just after birth or for others not until much later in life, they are unpredictable and there is no cure. Through our brochures and education we hope to educate the sufferers and their families.

PROJECT SUMMARY

PROJECT TITLE

STARS Onehunga Dance Movement Therapy Workshops for children with special needs

PROJECT SUMMARY

The STARS programme offers 32 sessions in 2 weekly dance movement therapy groups at the Onehunga Community Centre on Tuesdays during term time, from November 2015 - May 2016. The groups are for children aged 4-18 who are on the Autism Spectrum or who have a disability or a related disorder. The groups provide support with social skills, emotional literary, friendship skills, developmental movement and sensory integration.  The groups are facilitated by a qualified team of therapists and assistants.

FUNDING FOR

We are requesting funding to be used toward programme costs for sessions from November 2015- May 2016. This includes therapist and assistant fees, equipment and advertising costs, project coordination and administration overheads, and venue hire costs.

PROJECT LOCATION

Onehunga Community Centre, 83 Church Street, Onehunga

PROJECT DATES:

10/11/2015 - 09/05/2016

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We will market the programme with ads in the Central Leader and other local community papers, and also with listings in What's On, Eventfinder, Facebook and Neighbourly.  We will also promote the programme through our networks, including local schools, Autism NZ, TANI (the Asian Network), Disability Connect and The Children's Autism Foundation.

MAORI OUTCOMES

No

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - STARS is designed for children with special needs and disabilities, including Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Downs syndrome and cognitive delays. The programme is designed to be accessible for children with different abilities so that each person can participate and benefit from the session. The movements and activities provided during the class are thoughtfully chosen to suit mixed-abilities and the venue was carefully chosen for its accessibility. The therapist and assistants who facilitate the programme are trained to work with groups of mixed-abilities so they are able to provide sessions that are inclusive and fun for everyone. The venue is accommodating of people in wheelchairs or with limited mobility, and care is taken to ensure these needs are catered for at each session.

PROJECT RATIONALE

Many parents in the Maungakiekie-Tāmaki  area have children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other related developmental delays, and were requesting activities appropriate for their children. There were no other therapeutic dance movement classes available in this area for these children, and there has been a huge demand since the initial programmes ran at the Onehunga Community Centre in 2014. 

We established a need with interviews and surveys with community groups working with children with special needs such as Wilson Home Trust and YES Disability. We then consulted parents who attended the programmes regarding positive outcomes and ongoing needs.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

Community benefits of the STARS programme include having a programme for children who are often unable to attend mainstream activities due to heightened sensitivities and behavioural issues.  Without STARS, these children may not have the opportunity to attend other recreational dance classes.  Benefits include developing creativity, self-expression and self-esteem, as well as developing social skills and emotional literacy.

Sessions support the children’s overall development (social, emotional, cognitive, motor, sensory), as well as foster a sense of community belonging.

We will know we have created these benefits through evaluation forms, review meetings, repeat enrolment of children and referrals to new clients.

STARS provides opportunities for children with special needs to actively participate in a meaningful, rewarding, creative activity, where they are not only accepted, but valued as they are.  STARS encourages participants to develop a sense of belonging, be more accepted by the community, and experience being part of the community. 

The participants will have opportunities to discover each of their own unique talent and creative strengths, which will bring more positive input and creative expression and energy to the community. STARS also encourages personal development, such as social skills and emotional literacy, as well as relationship building.

MAORI OUTCOMES

Yes - More than 63% of our clients are Maori. By providing the help that we do, our aim is to improve family (Maori) social, economic and cultural well-being.

ACCESSIBLE FOR DISABLED

Yes - Currently we do not run any women's programs, but in the past (up to last year)  we had a participant that was visually impaired, another one (in her 70's)  used a walker, another would arrive in her scooter to help out with us as a volunteer in our lifeskills clubs and a fourth was in a wheelchair.  3 of the ladies attended (we would always pick up the visually impaired girl and the lady in the wheelchair) until the program ended, but after a while it became too hard to bring the lady in the wheelchair as our wheelchair access was too steep and our family workers (middle aged women) facilitating the program did not have the strength to push her up the ramp. The ramp is another project we would like to look at in the future. Should we run programs of this nature again, the programs will be open to anyone.

PROJECT RATIONALE

We continue to receive referrals from the schools and from CYFS, ATWC etc and our organisation has been running for the last 20 years - we are currently at full capacity with referrals.  

The need for the building project is due to more and more meetings with the said Agencies and Departments, Family Group Conferences, Parenting Programs, Youth meetings, Use by the Church, and so on.

The Community benefits are associated with the core services or activities of the Trust.

PROJECT TITLE

Dig It! Royal Oak Organic Garden Redevelopment

PROJECT SUMMARY

The garden, last remodelled 2009, now requires a significant redevelopment to ensure they are truly accessible to all of our stakeholders in the community. We intend to have raised demonstration beds, lay concrete pathways around these beds and create a central concreted courtyard and upgrade the structure where the regular gardening workshops are held, including opening up direct access from there to the raised beds. We will also construct new compost bins at the rear of the garden.

FUNDING FOR

We are seeking a contribution towards the total cost of the project which has an indicative budget of $42808. If successful, it is most likely that this funding will be put towards the costs of concreting the courtyard and creation of pathways. However, this depends upon the final design for the redevelopment and the project will be staged accordingly, depending upon the amounts of funding secured.

14 Erson Ave, Royal Oak

PROJECT DATES:

PROMOTION OF EVENT

Yes - We have a number of channels where we will actively market this project. We would share this information with our electronic database (of over 500 subscribers) and via our blog site and Facebook page. We would also pitch this story as an article to our local paper, but also to garden and sustainability-related magazines and newsletters.

Yes - The Dig It! Garden already has good accessibility and we want to improve that further. Many of the volunteers and visitors have disabilities and are always made to feel welcomed and valued. The intention is that once the redevelopment is completed, people with disabilities especially those with mobility impairments will be able to have even greater participation through the improved access of the workshop area (bubble house) and raised demonstration beds and the concrete pathways allowing wheelchair and other mobility aid users to access all parts of the garden.

PROJECT RATIONALE

The Dig It! gardens are a place where all people are welcome to volunteer and connect with others. With a diverse group of keen local gardeners, disabled people with an interest in gardening, people who are young and old and ethnically diverse, we believe the Dig It! melting pot is a wonderful example of the meaningful connections that can be made when an accessible environment is created for like-minded people. The proposed garden redevelopment will add additional value to an existing community asset.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

The redevelopment will be an opportunity to teach interested volunteers how to design and build in an accessible way. It will also be a space where they and students with disabilities can gain practical gardening skills, thus increasing their employability. More people will be engaged with a wider cross-section of their local community through their enjoyment of the open space, coming to the garden for education workshops or to purchase surplus produce and seedlings. We intend to invite members of the local community to join the working bees associated with the redevelopment to give them a sense of ownership and participation.
