Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

PHAB  is applying for funds to deliver culturally based social and recreational programmes for Pasifika youth and adults with disabilities across the Otara Papatoetoe local board area.
 
By providing the 3 social programmes delivered in Papatoetoe we are ensuring there is a space for Pasifika youth with disabilities to access independent socialisation and appropriate community support services.
 
Phab Pasfika intends to break down the barriers and the stigma associated with having a disability through reducing the social exclusion of Pacific young people with unique abilities. We provide a safe space where disabled young people can be accepted and engage in their culture. It also aims to build confidence in all of those involved. The groups also intend to raise awareness of the capabilities of disabled people in the wider community.
 
Phab Pasifika uses cultural awareness and belonging to change knowledge and attitudes towards disabled people in Pacific communities.
 
Members of Phab Pasfika are now more able to embrace and participate in their culture. Historically this was difficult as disabled person from a Pacific culture but since Phab Pasifika began they have been and continually are encouraged to learn their languages and participate cultural traditions.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      Community capacity building and empowerment

 

This fund will provide for our Pasifika youth with disabilities to ensure stronger, confident, inclusive and vibrant young people in the Otara papatoetoe region for the benefit of all PHAB members, Agia, Whanau and the wider community. 
 
PHAB promotes and encourages people of all abilities to come together on equal terms, to achieve complete inclusion within the wider community.

Holistic Education Foundation (HEF) - [Previously: All for One Education Charitable Trust (AfOE)

Legal status:

Incorporated Society, Charitable Trust

Activity focus:

Community

Conflicts of interest:

None identified

Project: Educational Assistance to Enable Equality of Educational Opportunity

Location:

Papatoetoe (for now)

Summary:

Please see all the above sections for details.
1. Currently, an on-going activity of educational assistance as described previously.
2. As resources are developed, our 'curriculum' will be expanded, notably to include
philosophy, spirituality (including critical analysis), history (including history of ideas and New Zealand history), science (particularly general science and the scientific method) and
civics.
3. Programmes will be for all ages, pre-eminently including how these play out in the home
and community environments in terms of pre-natal anti-natal, early childhood and beyond
as experiences provided and shared by the older for the younger. Thus, the "project" is long
term and dynamic.
4. Proficiency in languages (English and first languages, including etymology) and mathematics will remain a core
pillar

Expertise:

1. The Managing Director had 21 years in NZ's education system; much of this as a middle
or senior manager, to deputy principal.
2. The Managing Director also has over 19 years experience in providing out-of-school
educational support, in the form of a franchise company for 14 years, an independent
company for 5 years (renamed in 2019). During these latter years, he endeavoured to accommodate students from lower socio-economic families by offering substantial discounts
and "scholarships".
3. In late 2015, he founded a registered and incorporated charitable trust (since renamed
to HEF - see above) and has continued the process of developing a non-profit trading
enterprise which has helped a number of students, families and communities (please see
references).

Promotion:

1. Coloured 3 page flyers, which currently do not include the new entity.
2. Sandwich boards when these these are designed for the three entities comprising the
enterprise.
2. The new online entity/website when available. There will be provision for banner ads
3. NB. Deciding whether to use the Manukau Courier (again) because it isn't useful anymore
due to very patchy circulation and much reduced size.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

1. The Managing Director has been involved in the out-of-school education sector for over
19 years and it is clear that the normal commercial options are inaccessible to a very
significant number of parents in the board areas mentioned due to cost and location.
2. In this context it should be noted that HEF has tried to find a site for a satellite centre in
Otara, but none has been available. However, Otara remains a priority for us. With respect
to out-of-school learning contexts, part of this is a need to accept the critical importance of
agencies which cannot help but be of primary significance in the development of young (and
very young and unborn) individuals: parents, homes, families (incl. elders and communities.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      Community capacity building and empowerment

 

NB: Most of the above (those not selected) also apply
However:
1. See above sections
2. In accordance with HEF's Trust Deed, the present Trust Board intends to progressively
vest control of HEF to recruits from communities of interest, whose task will then be to
administer the Trust Deed.
3. These communities, with appropriate guidance and support, will thereby have control of
programmes that HEF provides. 4. Parents, would-be parents, elders, other family members and communities will be
empowered through, guidance, training and support to better understand their respective
roles in relation to the Educational development (see above on the purpose of Education) of
youngsters among them.
5. Offering Educational assistance to young students directly improves their educational and
life prospects throughout life (and beyond)
6. Offering Educational assistance to caregivers improves their knowledge and skill and
enables them to help their children.
7. Offering Educational assistance to communities enables them to provide an environment
which promotes both individual and community well-being
8. Offering opportunities for a variety of communities (cultural, ethnic, spiritual, both
emergent and established) to interact and collaborate, thus creating the prospect that
communities (and the individuals of which they are comprised) will benefit from each other.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·      Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

HEF currently has the following community partners: 1. Christ For All Nations (CFAN) -
Church elders are Maori 2, Family Start (Based in Manukau) - Significant number of Maori
staff and clients. 3. English Language Partners (Papatoetoe) - which assists refugees. We
are seeking partnerships with Tainui and representations have been made. Likewise, HEF is
interested in other similar partnerships, including iwi, marae and individual whanau.
In essence, we are reluctant to move forward further with current or new partnerships until
we have premises suitable as a base of operations (applications have been made) and we
are further advanced in the development of our web-based capacities, which will be the
spear-head of our enterprise. We anticipate completion within weeks.

Additional information to support the application:

1. Participation has intentionally been kept low at this stage of our development. Also, current participation has been significantly affected by the "lock down" and has not yet recovered. However, participation will be kept small until:  (a) Premises for use as a base for operations have been secured, before expanding further into community-based settings, and 
(b) The third arm of our network (name is confidential at present), which will provide, and collaboratively allow us to develop, programmes for use in both physical and virtual face-to-face settings, It is almost ready to "go live".  
 
This is a long term project.

Project: Two Otara-Papatoetoe youth attend Blue Light's Life Skills programme

Location:

Central: 10 Maire Street, Nukuhau, Wairakei 3377, North: RNZAF base Whenuapai, Auckland, South: Burnham Military Camp, Powles Road, Burnham 7600

Summary:

Enabling two young people from the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board area to attend Blue Light Life Skills Programme. This one-week residential programme is strategically targeted towards either developing potential leaders from low socio economic areas or as an intervention strategy for at-risk young people as well as a spring board for those from disadvantage. The programme focuses on the critical life skills such as self-development, self-control, and team work that will enable young people to be successful in their homes, schools, communities and employment.

Expertise:

Blue Light has been successfully delivering its Life Skills programmes in partnership with the NZ Defence Force for over 11 years.
The demand for this programme continues to be considerably higher than current delivery capacity and is highly valued by Oranga Tamariki, Police Youth Services, and Secondary Schools. Blue Light in partnership with the NZ Police volunteers has been delivering its successful programmes and activities with youth in the community for over 36 years

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The community benefits of Blue Light's Life Skills programme works towards students gaining a:
 
-              sense of contributing something of value to society in the future - through volunteer work and active involvement in their community
-              feeling of connectedness to others and to society - through participation in the recreational and social activities that contribute to positive outcomes in their communities 
-              belief that youth have choices about their future - through enabling youth to have a say about the issues that affect them, their family and community, putting these choices into practice and reviewing them
-              feeling of being positive and comfortable with their own identity - through reaffirming young people's chosen identities and connecting them to support agencies and groups within their own communities (be that cultural, spiritual, gender and or sexual for example). 
 
The course is about building strong connections and encourages active involvement in all areas of life including:
 
-              Family and whānau
-              Schools, training institutions and workplaces
-              Communities (sports, church, cultural groups)
-              Peer groups

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      Promote youth leadership and participation in employment, education training and business

 

Blue Light's project is to send two young people from the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board area to attend a Blue Light’s Life Skills programme camp. This programme is a one-week residential course based around the successful model of youth development and run in partnership with the Youth Life Skills team within the NZ Defence Force.
 
Blue Light's Life Skills programme focuses on self-development, self-control, teamwork, discipline, respect, problem-solving and teaching everyday life skills such as making your bed and ironing your clothes. These are critical skills all young people need to succeed at school, at home, in employment and in the community.
 
The principles of the Life Skills programme are about involving young people and enabling them to have a say in decisions that affect them, their family, their community and their country, and putting into practice and reviewing those decisions.
 
Young people can earn up to 4 Level 1 and 8 Level 2 NCEA credits when they complete the course.  In some cases, this has been the difference between young people passing NCEA Level 1 and 2 or failing.
 
Young people will be nominated by local Police, local Blue Light branch members, community agencies and schools in the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board area. Not only does this process support a hands on selection process it also means that these young people have a point of contact, mentor and supporter back in the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board area once the programme is completed. Blue Light continues to strongly advocate for the young person and communicate with their referrer to ensure positive gains are ongoing.

Project: Habitat Curtain Bank

Location:

8 Ormiston Road, Otara, Auckland

Summary:

The Habitat Curtain Bank is a vital public service that provides free curtains to low income families in Auckland. The Curtain Bank relies on generous donations of time, funds, and preloved curtains. Curtains make a home warmer, drier, and healthier, leading to improved health and overall wellbeing.  Funds received will be used to cover laundry costs of donated preloved curtains so they can be provided to families.

Expertise:

Habitat has been operating the Curtain Bank for approximately 2.5 years.  Over that time, we have supported over 700 households and distributed approximately 8,000 curtains.  Of the curtains we distribute, approximately 15% to 20% are donated, preloved curtains.

Dates:

21/09/2020 - 30/06/2021

Promotion:

This Financial Year we are looking to hold more structured donations of pre-loved curtains through our main collector, Parnell Rotary.
We are looking to hold a marketed pre-loved curtain drive in November (after everyones spring cleaning), February and then again in May, just before winter. This will allow us to collect large amounts of curtains and have rostered volunteers working with the pre-loved curtains. After receiving the curtains we will have them laundered, and then  volunteers will work with the curtains to cut, measure, re-line and re-tape where necessary. 
The Local Board will be mentioned in these drives through our materials to promote it.  Local Board will also be mentioned on our website, EOFY reporting and social media.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Our intended outcome is to eliminate poverty housing and improve well-being of low-income families across Auckland. The three main benefits of our Curtain Bank programme are:
-warmer, drier homes
- fewer respiratory illnesses, especially in children and young people
- reduced heating bills

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      Promote better health and wellbeing in the community

 

Housing issues in New Zealand affect our health, wealth, and quality of life. The high cost of housing keeps families in a cycle of poverty, as insufficient income is left to meet basic needs such as food, clothing, transport, medical care and education. A large number of people on lower incomes live in older housing stock, which are often cold and damp.  While the Health Homes Act does require a certain level of insulation and better heating and ventilation, providing curtains is not compulsory.
A home loses up to 40% of its heat through the windows. Curtains can help reduce heat loss (Consumer, May 2015).
Cold, damp homes can be linked to increased illnesses and infections. The flow on effects from this unhealthy environment erodes mana and self-worth and undermines children’s ability to succeed at school. Heat loss also means homes are not being heated most efficiently, which means higher heating bills for an already tight budget.
The Habitat Curtain Bank promotes health and wellbeing because it provides low income Auckland whanau with properly fitted, full length, lined curtains, thus reducing heat loss in the home, potentially reducing energy bills, and decreasing incidence of housing related health concerns.  Many families cannot afford curtains. 
Between 15% and 20% of all curtains we supply are donated second hand and then altered to fit.  All these curtains need laundering. By choosing to fund the Habitat Curtain Bank, the Otara-Paptoetoe Local Board will be promoting better health and wellbeing through warm, dry, healthy homes.

Yes - People with disabilities are welcome to donate or to apply for curtains

Target ethnic groups:

All/everyone

Healthy environment approach:

Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages

We work with a number of organisations to divert waste from landfill. One example, in particular, is EcoMatters Environment Trust – collecting second hand curtains diverts them from landfill.  This team talks to customers and the general public about minimising waste and the benefits of this. When curtains and fabrics donated cannot be used for curtains (too small/damaged) we take what we can and use them to sew our cloth tote bags (Rags to Bags) to sell in our ReStores (second hand stores), which again promotes waste minimisation by reducing  plastic bag use.

We are requesting funding for the laundering costs of the donated preloved curtains  so we can provide families with clean, healthy curtains.

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

We would apply for funding from other sources and spend more money on buying curtains instead of laundering preloved donated ones. Please note that the attached budget document is only based on the first six months - we have no funding confirmed for the second half of the financial year.

Additional information to support the application:

Between September 2019 and 30 June 2020, we’ve fitted 3999 Curtains, impacting 327 households and the demand for curtains remains constant. 
In light of recent COVID19 Pandemic restrictions, there are more people who are struggling financially and are having to change their living situations. Our goal is to ensure everyone has a decent place to call home and that all requests for curtains are fulfilled. Please note that our accounts for the financial year ending 30 June 2020 are currently being audited so the attached documents are our audited accounts for the 2019 financial year.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

It was more than just about our street but a project that impacts the whole community.   The impact is felt by the whole community as it represents something positive that reflects on and can be shared by the whole community.
 
It models to the rest of the community that we all can be active citizens here and make real changes at grass roots level.  Agency's and Organisations are not the only ones that have the power to make change, but we do too and in some cases only we can do what we do and ensure it's sustainability.
 
It strengthens relationships between neighbours and neighbouring streets where the bi-product is tension relieved off services because many issues are being delt with at a grass roots level.  There is strength in numbers and therefore crime and issues naturally become less and few apart.  Neighbours then begin to communicate more and mobilise themselves easier when needed to solve local issues that affect them.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      Community capacity building and empowerment

 

This project is one of the very few projects in Otara that has been created, planned and executed fully by local residents.  This projects achieves quite a few goals including promoting the 'capacity' of our local Otara residents to develop, implement and sustain their own solutions to problems in a way that helps them shape and exercise control over their physical, social, economic and cultural environments.  Every year hundreds of families living in Otara navigate their way through difficult times and Christmas is one of those times of the year that despite the many challenges they face, families want to ensure a happy and memorable time for their families especially their children.  Being able to give families hope from one resident to another helps to motivate our community to remain optimistic for their future and resonates so much more than if an external provider were to do it.  It empowers residents to know they can achieve anything as they get to reap the rewards and benefit of the success they achieve in planning and executing such a mammoth task that saw over 20k attend in 2019.  We have beneficiaries, residents who have been unemployed but wanting to work, youth members, those affiliated to gangs, our elders and more who put everything aside during christmas to make a conscious decision to work together and in the process get to gain more life and employment skills and bridge closer relationships with each other.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·      Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

We personally have a strong commitment to improving Maori outcomes and do this already with many of our current projects.  Any opportunity that we can present especially with our young Maori to take leadership in many aspects of these projects, we do and have done so in the past and will continue to do so.  We have many young Maori boys living on Cooper Crescent and I am currently working on ways to create neutral ground to engage them all in one space with the other young people living here to begin the process of giving them these opportunities especially in the lead up to this years Christmas project.

Target ethnic groups:

Healthy environment approach:

Promote smoke-free messages, Include waste minimisation (zero waste) messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice

* Smoke Free - One of our residents works for CAB.  We will work with her to ensure we have the stand up and promotional material available through the event.  This will also be communicated back from through social media strategy.
* Waste Minimisation - We are big on this and with a lot of our events have already started work to help change local behaviour.  This includes encouraging people to bring their own plates or cups on the food nights, requesting that food vendors use bio degradable utensils and not use plastic bags, providing clearly marked recycling bins for plastics-composting-landfill, tear drop banners and ensuring these are reflected through our social media marketing strategy for the event.
* Healthy Options for food and drink - We will be asking all vendors to consider this when they think of the menu's that decide to use.  We will also be looking to make water stations available this year.

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

Our local MP, Councillors and Board members attended last year.  They raised concerns to us after attending as they saw the high number of people in attendance and the congestion on the roads which is a good problem to have :-).  This is a signature event for Otara every year and this year we are going even bigger with almost the whole block jumping on board.  They had asked us about traffic control but we were approved under what we requested which resulted in us not being able to afford proper traffic control.

Project: Community Gardens Redevelopment

Location:

2 May Rd, Mangere East, & 11A Central Ave, Papatoetoe Auckland

Summary:

We are proposing to replenish community vegetable garden beds and recreational areas for our tenants living in self-contained studio apartments in both May Road, Mangere East and Central Ave, Papatoetoe Auckland. Compass Housing funded the original installation of the gardens in 2016 and they now need to be replenished and to include the development of recreational areas with easy access pathways where tenants can relax and engage with others in their community.

Expertise:

We offer a wide range of community development activities all of which are underpinned by the same desire to promote social inclusion, economic opportunity, community cohesion and empower tenants. In Australia we have worked with organisations such as Vegepod and the NSW Botanical Gardens Community Group in implementing over 10 community gardens across NSW and Queensland. Our experience has demonstrated that these gardens and communal spaces promote social inclusion and high engagement with tenants across a broad age demographic.

The local board's contribution would be noted and acknowledged in all written material produced by Compass NZ in relation to the project.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

By creating recreational space and vegetable gardens, we aim to enhance opportunities for our tenants to develop their interest in growing and eating their own vegetables and to socialise in a welcoming environment. These activities have the potential to increase and foster a friendly, supportive and spirited community.  Not only does eating the fresh produce help to keep people healthy, but gardening has also been shown to reduce the stresses and strains of everyday life, and ignite a sense of calm and happiness in a person. Community gardens are great for bringing people from a range of different backgrounds together. All different ages, races, religions and social classes can come together and connect through a shared interest and in a meaningful way.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      increase opportunities for active living and community involvement and connectednessPromote better health and wellbeing in the community

 

Social ties are important to the well-being of people in a community and with the introduction of community gardens and recreational areas in our complexes, there will be opportunities for tenants to be active participants in the upkeep and maintenance, bringing positive health effects and a sense of community involvement. Having the space to build connections with neighbours can potentially help reduce antisocial behaviour, empower residents and allow them to feel safe in their neighborhoods.By creating community vegetable gardens and recreational areas we aim to increase access to fresh foods, increase physical activity through garden maintenance activities, improve dietary habits through education, increase fruit and vegetable intake, reduce the risk of obesity and obesity-related diseases, improve mental health and promote relaxation. We also offer quit smoking programmes and we hope to develop suitable non-smoking spaces for our tenants to relax in and engage with each other.
