Requesting grant for:

We are requesting funding to cover our essential items for this event;

- Stage hire

- Marquee hire

- Sound system hire

- generator and leads hire

If part funded, how would you make up the difference:

We would attempt to get funding from local funding organisations.  We have previously looked at alternative cheaper stages  like truck beds....but they carry increased safety risk, which we are not prepared to accept. Project plan would proceed as planned,

shortfall would come from PTA funds. We would seriously consider whether to continue for the following year if we were not able to get funding.

Project: The Studio

 

Location:

Summary:

This year I have been creating oil paintings which derive from my interest in portraiture and display the evolution of my practice through my journey at Elam. The themes I explore span from the personal relationship of the artist with the studio and the influence of the modern environment. These are juxtaposed with the invasion of images I have sourced from Instagram, which speak of the influence this platform is having on art and society

Community benefits

 

Identified need:

 

 

Since my first exhibition at The Franklin Art Gallery in 2015, I have built a following around my Paintings. As I approach my graduation of my degree, I am seeking an opportunity to express the album I have developed through critical thinking and research through my Paintings and Pluralist approach to creating, to an audience who has only witnessed my progression through Images I share via Instagram and Facebook. The exhibition is some what the completion of the Painting, As the audience is needed for A Painting to be complete

 

Identified community outcomes:

 

 

I aim to entertain, insite and intrigue the audience and hopefully more. Introducing my approach to Art and Image creating I hope to influence and motivate others whether being students or people in other disciplines.

This year I have been creating oil paintings which derive from my interest in portraiture and display the evolution of my practice through my journey at Elam. The themes I explore span from the personal relationship of the artist with the studio and the influence of the modern environment. These are juxtaposed with the invasion of images I have sourced from Instagram, which speak of the influence this platform is having on art and society. I aspire to mimic this chaos through my paintings. After being an observer at The Steel Gallery for many years, I feel the space will be the fitting environment for me to showcase my vision with an audience who have until now only been able to view my paintings through digital devices. The ability to provide a different medium for my followers to view my work is motivating.

Project: Lifeline Calls for Franklin

Location:

Franklin

Summary:

The lifeline services are ongoing.  Support is required for all these:

Our services include: 

0800 LIFELINE – free national phone counselling and crisis support, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year 

0508 TAUTOKO  Suicide Crisis Line - New Zealand's only free 24 hour suicide crisis line 

0800KIDSLINE - free near-peer phone counselling for kids aged 5-18.   

Lifeline provides high quality telephone counselling free of charge to people  in distress or crisis across New Zealand.  Since Lifeline began 50 years ago, our volunteers have contributed over one million volunteer hours to ensure people have someone to turn to at any hour day or night, helping keep them safe, preventing suicide or just helping them to get through the day.

Identified need:

 

Demand for Lifeline’s helpline service increased 40% in 12 months to 100,000 calls per year. Suicide and self-harm calls increased by 48% towards the end of last year.  There were 579 suicides New Zealand last year including 59 young people aged 10-19. Call numbers have increased but staff and volunteer numbers are down due to a shortage of funding and we now receive more calls than we can answer.    This last year 2000 calls were from the Franklin area.

Identified community outcomes:

 

With funding we are able to train more volunteers which will decrease the number of unanswered calls. Our Volunteer Telephone Counsellors help callers with a range of issues including grief, anxiety, financial worries, relationships, abuse & suicide.  Rather than “fixing problems” or telling callers what they “should do”, our  Telephone Counsellors support callers in finding their own tools and strategies to handle stressful situations, enabling them to work through issues and reach constructive decisions.  

By supporting these callers, families, whanau the wider community is also strengthened - counselling can produce a ripple effect of change where individuals stop repeating negative behaviours and seek additional help.  Children can be protected and helped, for example, as a result of calling Kidsline or their parents receiving counselling support.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

encourage healthy lifestyle choices and provide sporting opportunities for the community

It is vital that the community feel safe and supported. Without access to the resources available through Lifeline    individuals and communities (Including businesses) are unable to have the mental health support that is vital.  Suicide, depression, isolation/loneliness are in the top five trending issues in the year ending March 2018 and often people will not ask for help. With close to 2000 calls received from Franklin in this year, this confirms that confidential services are vital for communities where people, who maybe, known or work in the community, feel uncomfortable seeking help at the risk of being either identified or talked about.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

The cost of achieving a driver licence can be a major hurdle for many.  The groups we want to support often also have high literacy and numeracy needs.  Through participating in this programme students can enhance these competencies because of the literacy and numeracy skills embedded in the course content.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Deliver a literacy programme to enable individuals and whanau/families to identify their own learning and literacy competencies and needs in order to enhance their literacy skills.  

Students will have greater confidence and skills to engage with the driver licence processes.  The measure of success will be the number of students who go on to complete the driver licence theory test, and take up the offer of a practical; driving lesson.  

Further learning pathways, employment opportunities.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

Improving access to employment by raising Literacy, Numeracy, Digital skills for "second chance people".  In particular, Maori, Pasifika and Youth need Literacy and Numeracy help to improve their employment prospects and Life skills. 

We are increasingly accessing harder to reach groups in our community and reflect a high Maori and Pasifika learner clientele than percentage indicated by the Franklin census date in 2013.   

The cost of achieving a driver licence can be a major hurdle for many.  The groups we want to support often also have high literacy and numeracy needs.

We would like our sandpit area to be a sun-safe area for our children as it is one of their favourite places to play. 

Create safe areas for our children to learn and explore through play.

Encourage more community parents and children to join playgroup by providing safe places to play. 

Provide a safe community facility for the existing community members and the large numbers of new families expected over the next few years in Waiau Pa, Clarks Beach and beyond.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

Our local community playgroup's sandpit is one of our children's favourite play areas, however there is currently no shade. We would love to provide our children with a sun-safe area to play and explore by installing a shade sail over the area.

Project: Extension of Ayrlies visitor carpark for the Ayrlies Plant Fair

Location:

Ayrlies Visitor Car Park, 125 Potts Road, Whitford

Summary:

We want to upgrade and extend the existing carpark to support the annual Ayrlies Plant Fair and other charitable events that celebrate our unique local community identity and bring people together in healthy activities. The present carpark has limited applications when we hold big charitable events such as the Ayrlies Plant Fair, the Heroic Garden Festival and the NZ Opera. At the recent Ayrlies Plant Fair, cars parked on neighbours' front areas and on Potts Road up to 1 km away from the Ayrlies visitor carpark. Many vehicles required a tractor rescue on departure. It also created issues with local verge-side flora.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Difficulties with car and bus parking from previous events at Ayrlies highlight the unsuitablity of the existing Ayrlies visitor car park. We experienced carpark limitations very recently when we held the first Ayrlies Plant Fair on 11-12 May 2018, a community gardening event. The date is already set for the second Ayrlies Plant Fair 5-6 April 2019. We want to make this a safe festive annual event that encourages people to come and enjoy twenty specialist plant growers and experts, to purchase plants, and the opportunity to walk one of NZ's oldest and much-loved gardens and the wetlands.

Identified community outcomes:

 

A safer passage for all people that attend events at Ayrlies; reduced negative impact on local flora; and the creation of additional car parking capacity for increased visitor numbers, including people with impaired mobility, thereby increasing the inclusivity and reach of people able to visit the garden and events held at Ayrlies.

The Ayrlies Plant Fair event is a festive occasion, an opportunity to meet specialist plant nurserywomen and men, where twenty specialist plant growers offer their knowledge and expertise all in one venue and provide high quality plants for sale. The event also provides an opportunity for the public to walk the 53 year old Ayrlies garden and wetlands that showcase many of the plants on sale. The event brings together keen gardeners, specialist plant growers, horticultural societie and the New Zealand horticultural industry that together support the unique identity of the Franklin local community. The event celebrates our garden heritage, provides increased visitor numbers and spend in the Franklin district at the same time promoting healthy lifestyle choices of gardening, walking an established garden and the wetlands, a wildlife sanctuary that supports biodiversity. These activities contribute to sustainable living practices.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support events that celebrate our distinctive local communities and bring people together

The project provides much needed increased car parking for visitors; a much improved transition for visitors from vehicles to the entrance gate; designated car parks and a safer surfacing for those people with limited mobility; and safer manoeurving for all vehicles including tour buses attending the Ayrlies Plant Fair and other events

Project: Music therapy sessions for preschool children with special needs

Location:

Te Akonga Early Learning Centre, 71 Franklin Road, Pukekohe

Summary:

Te Akonga Early Learning Centre is a not for profit early childhood centre in Pukekohe which specializes in working with children with special needs in an inclusive environment.  Te Akonga was able to access funding earlier this year to enable Raukatauri to provide six months of group music therapy sessions for its children, but these funds will end in November, 2018.  During these sessions our Registered Music Therapist uses musical activities to address individual goals for the students, such as increased interpersonal interaction, improved expressive communication and sustained attention.  We are applying to the Franklin Local Board in order to continue these sessions through the middle of 2019.

Promotion:

While we won’t advertise this project to gain attendees, we are always looking for opportunities to promote our work and music therapy in general.  When music therapy sessions began at Te Akonga in June, 2018, the story was featured through the on-line platforms of the Waikato Times and the Franklin County News, and we would certainly hope to do a follow up story if funding from the Franklin Local Board enables the sessions to continue.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Through formal surveys and conversations with families and disability organisations, we have determined the need for community activities that are designed to accommodate the physical, cognitive and behavioural challenges of children with special needs, as many of our clients cannot participate in sport, music lessons, drama and art.  Response to our school programmes have been particularly enthusiastic, with teachers and administrators saying the following about music therapy on service evaluations:

•           My students develop the skills to engage and interact with their peers, learn to share, turn take and focus on tasks.

•           (The therapist) interacts perfectly with my students and has a true belief they can learn and develop.

•           Music therapy gave them confidence, while challenging them again and again.

Identified community outcomes:

 

Through music therapy we assist in the growth, development and well-being of individuals with a range of special needs and abilities.  The children who participate in music therapy at Te Akonga have a variety of diagnoses, including autism, global developmental delay, ADHD, anxiety disorder, cerebral palsy and speech-language disorder.  Music therapy lets these children express themselves, develop independence, better manage their emotions, engage with their community and others, and develop meaningful relationships.  Such skills and developments continue outside of weekly sessions, meaning the benefit of the work we do also impacts our client’s whanau and the wider communities in which they live, with our estimate being that five people benefit from each client who we see.  The director of Te Akonga has expressed that the parents of the children who are participating in music therapy are ecstatic that their children have the opportunity to participate in these funded sessions, as the cost for most individual families would be prohibitive.   She has also stated the value for the staff of participating in the weekly sessions, as they learn the musical strategies used by the therapist and can incorporate them into their work with all of the children at the Centre.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

Research shows that music therapy is an effective way to develop the social and cognitive skills of children with special needs, as well as to reduce their isolation and increase their participation within the community.  Because of this, Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre was thrilled when asked by Te Akonga Early Learning Centre in Pukekohe to provide music therapy groups to the special needs children at the school.  These groups use music to develop the social, communication, cognitive and physical skills of the children who attend, and also provide the Centre’s staff with training on how to effectively use music throughout the children’s school day.

We have specially designed and made instruments that allow even those with the smallest range of movement to make music, and have recently invested in a number of technologies that make the smallest movement sound like a symphony.  Our staff specialize in working with people with disabilities, creating a warm, welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

We start with Three Golden Rules and then, depending on the age of the children we discuss different scenarios which help the children to develop empathy by using "how would you feel if...". We created Jelly and our other cartoon characters to make the programmes more relatable for children and make it easier for them to remember what the programmes teach.

Promotion:

When we receive funding we promote on Social Media that we have received funding from the Local Board. We then contact local schools letting them know that funding has come through and organise with them to go in and deliver the course. We encourage the schools to put it into their newsletter what they are doing so that it get parents and caregivers talking. We are also approaching the local news papers to see if they would be interested in doing a feature. The logo from the board is put on our Social Media  and website. Every programme has a photograph taken that then has the local board logo inserted and a thank you is put on our Facebook page.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Over the past 10 years there have been almost 24,000 reported dog bites on children under the age of 14 that require medical attention. That equates to 20% of the overall dog bites reported in NZ per annum. From research overseas it has shown that the best way to reduce dog bites is through education. In 2014 The Animals & Society Institute (MI USA) stated - “Varied kinds of studies strongly suggest that the most effective way to decrease dog aggression in general may be simply to educate people”

Identified community outcomes:

 

By educating children and teachers on how to behave around dogs and understanding why dogs behave the way they do; we can assist in reducing the number of dog bites or incidents that may occur. Through our programs we can teach children how to stay safe around dogs. This will bring down the number of dog bites and help to ensure less incidents occur in the future.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

By educating the children and teachers in our community we are actively contributing to areas such as growing community spirit and engagement, safer communities, teaching children empathy by getting them to recognise animals as sentinel beings, helping children to learn and teach other family members and offering support and assistance to teachers to allow them to have more confidence and understanding when they are taking the children out of school grounds and into public areas where they may encounter dogs.

Project: Waiuku Search and Rescue Training and Boat Enhancements

Location:

NA

Summary:

This project seeks to improve the ability of our unit to provide search and rescue operations to the Franklin area as well as provide additional and improved resources for classroom and on  water training of crew within our unit and public. 

The enhancements to our vessel will allow us to operate safer in a wider range of adverse weather conditions.  Our current vessel canopy is not water tight and prevents optimum search and rescue operation in large seas or heavy rain conditions. 

The unit puts a lot of focus on providing training to our crews to ensure the best outcomes in search and rescue operations.  We would also like to offer more public training.

Promotion:

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Waiuku Search and rescue spend over 100 hours on the water each year with our dedicated rescue vessels.  We have been in a number of adverse weather conditions and experienced the challanges of the current canopy.  An improved canopy would greatly enhance crew ability to search effectively. 

We have run a number of public training sessions and have received verbal feedback that the venue is convenient but not well set up for presenting training material.  Responding to this feedback we aim to improve the classroom electronics. 

On water training is essential to keep our crews motivated and ready for any operation.  Training fuel is not covered under any other grant scheme.

Identified community outcomes:

 

We aim to provide improved search and rescue performance in a wider range of conditions.  This would include a greater ability to cross the Manukau Bar, a particularly dangerous section of water where many vessels find themselves in trouble.  Being able to continue searches in adverse weather improves the changes of finding victims alive and saving lives at sea. 

Classroom training of the public we believe is key to reducing the number of people that find themselves in need of rescue.  Especially our bar crossing and day-skipper training should give recreational boaties the tools to assess whether to go onto the water or not and the ability to maintain contact with Coastguard to safeguard them from harm.

 

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

Franklin is lucky to be surrounded by great waterways to enjoy.  Activities such as fishing, kayaking, water skiing and wake boarding, wind surfing etc are all possible and to be encouraged.  Unfortunately, the statistics show activities around water can lead to catastrophic outcomes with multiple drownings every year and boaties getting themselves into dangerous situations that require urgent assistance.   

We are seeking funding for a range of activities to improve our search and rescue ability and the safety of our crew and patients once on board our vessel.  We are also requesting funding to improve our land training facilities that are used for public training events to try and minimise the frequency of incidents occurring on our waterways.

Project: RSA FRANKLIN FACILITY UPGRADE AND COVERED ACCESSWAY TO TOWN HALL

Location:

RSA Franklin Inc. 17 Edinburgh Street, Pukekohe and Pukekohe War Memorial Town Hall, corner of Massey Avenue and Edinburgh Street, Pukekohe. The location is specific to the Edinburgh Street access of the Town Hall and RSA Franklin, and the interior of RSA Franklin off Edinburgh Street.

Summary:

To facilitate a complete upgrade and development of a larger community complex, this project encompasses three key elements. Replacement of four non-functional ceiling heating and air conditioning units in the RSA Franklin space would promulgate a warm, safe environment of all users. The replacement of an aged cool room refrigeration unit would encourage users to utilise our facility as a more complete hospitality package. Enclosing the external access way from the War Memorial Town Hall to RSA Franklin would promote choice to clients to use parts or the two facilities as one if need be. This encourages the health and safety of users moving between the two facilities, providing protection from inclement weather and security of person and property.

Promotion:

RSA Franklin plan to promote/market and advertise this project as much as possible. We want our community to know about the great improvements it will bring to our facility, as well as the safer, more convenient, cohesive connection between RSA Franklin and the War Memorial Town Hall. Promoting this project, also creates the opportunity to attract other local organizations to use our facility on a regular basis.

The promotion, marketing & advertising of the project would be achieved through our local media, as well as our very active Facebook platform.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

Our air conditioning/heating ceiling units are beyond the end of their working lives, parts are no longer available or non-functional. Members and patrons freeze with cold, promoting ill-health among our very young and elderly. Old equipment operates off R22 refrigerant gas and no longer meets government energy star ratings, and was phased out from 2015. The cool room refrigeration equipment is also beyond its working life and requires regular, expensive maintenance. Entry to the Town Hall is typically from Massey Avenue. Clients and volunteers using both facilities have to access the Town Hall externally from the main Massey Avenue entrance or through fire exits off Edinburgh Street. This presents difficulties during inclement weather and compromised security of person and property.

Identified community outcomes:

 

1. Wider range of clients to have choice of using both facilities at once and making it a more secure environment for people and property. 

2. More user-friendly for community groups by promoting a safe, warm, dry facility 

3. Presently there is no licensed bar facility or commercial kitchen in the Town Hall complex. Replacing the coolroom equipment enables RSA Franklin to host and/or accommodate a wider range of clientele and community groups thereby enhancing its reputation for serving the community through acts of hospitality, compassion, and comradeship.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

To upgrade a historic facility to meet the needs of the community, thereby providing a warmer, safer multi-purpose space for clients of the War Memorial Town Hall, customers and patrons of RSA Franklin Inc, and other community organizations.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

The ANZAC parade and community service are both well established annual events for our local community that has around 150 - 200 people attend each year.  The Dawn service is a more recent event (running since 2015), that unfortunately was cancelled in 2018 due to lack of volunteer support.  It was made very clear that there is a public demand for the more formal dawn service as well as the informal community service and so both committees have combined to ensure that both services will take place in 2019.

Identified community outcomes:

 

1 - To give local residents the opportunity to commemorate ANZAC day at a service best suited to thier own needs.  Either the formal dawn service or the informal mid-morning community service.

2 -Ensure that youth are included in the services so that the ANZAC spirit is kept alive and relevant for future generations

3 - Provide an opprotunity for all members of our community to gather and meet.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support initiatives that celebrate our arts, culture and heritage, and help create a vibrant local art scene

We are providing a local opportunity for our community to come together and commemrate ANZAC Day in a positive and youth led service each year.  This is an event that brings together the community across all age groups and backgrounds to remember those that have served in the past and reflect on how New Zealand continues to support peace keeping and relief efforts across the world in the present day.  

 

The parade is led by veterans and current service personnel and is joined by all of uniformed volunteer service groups; Fire & Emergency, Coastguard, First Response, Crime Patrol, Scouts NZ, Girl Guiding NZ, St John Youth and well as our schools; Beachlands School and Mareatai Beach School and local Early Childhood Centres. 

The service, held in Beachlands School Hall, is very much youth led, with art work on display from both local primary schools.  The schools also have speakers represent them from their intermediate population.  We invite the Scouts, Guides and St John Youth to led our prayers and bible readings. 

This is a true community service that is open to everyone and helps to keep the spirirt of ANZAC and its meaning alive for future generations.

ANZAC Parade - road closures

In the past the road closures have been managed by volunteers from the Crime Patrol. Recent changes to Health and Safety legislation require us to now have a commercial operator to put the road closure plan in place.  Our current funding does not have this budgeted, so we would like to ask the local board to consider funding this part of the event.

This funding can help the Toy Library offer a consistent and continuous service to our local community, so that volunteer hours can be spent on other aspects of running the Toy Library and managing outreach events for the enrichment of our membership and the wider Waiuku community.

Community benefits

Identified need:

 

After many years struggling to open the Toy Library twice a week with volunteer staff, we made the choice to fund a paid librarian to cover both shifts, in order to provide a consistent and continuous service to our members. Previously it was very difficult to find the volunteer hours necessary to do anything much more than keep the doors open, which hampered our ability to grow and reach out further to the community.

Identified community outcomes:

 

- To grow the Toy Library membership, allowing more financial self-sufficiency 

- To attract more volunteers to continue to provide an excellent service for members, and to foster a sense of community siprit amongst our members

- To free up volunteer hours for working on projects like Waiuku Children's Day on Wheels and other yearly events for the community

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

support community groups to be effective and contribute to the community, particularly in shaping and developing their areas to be better and safer places

This application is for a contribution to our librarian costs for the year 1st October 2018 to 30th June 2019.

For the last several years Waiuku Toy Library has run a paid shift ($35 for 2.5 hours) for each of our twice-weekly opening sessions. Employing a paid librarian ensures the Toy Library does not have to rely on volunteer hours to keep running, and means there is a more continuous and consistent standard of service for our members.

 

The Waiuku Toy Library is aiming to grow our membership, reflecting a growing community, as well as addressing the fact there are still many young families in the area who are not aware of our service. We have a small but dedicated team of volunteers who are committed to helping the Library grow, as well as continuing to build on the community spirit we've created with our annual Children's Day on Wheels event, held annually in March on New Zealand Children's Day. We intend to create several more community activities this year to try to attract more members and more volunteering assistance.  

Funding in the form of a grant for our librarian wages goes a long way to help our small team of volunteers complete these tasks without having to cover the regular opening shifts. When cover is needed the available hours for other forms of Toy Library support are limited, hampering our efforts to achieve our aims for great and more effective contributions to our small community.

Zero waste minimisation

Yes, the WTL plans to be proactive about waste minimisation in terms of consciously-made toy selection, discouraging single-use plastic and encouraging recycling and upcycling of toys.
