Grant of new community lease to Community Waitakere Charitable Trust, Cranwell Park, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson

File No.: CP2020/14596

 

  

 

Te take mō te pūrongo

Purpose of the report

1.       To grant a new community lease to Community Waitakere Charitable Trust, located on the first floor of the council owned building known as the Zeal building, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson. 

Whakarāpopototanga matua

Executive summary

2.       On 27 November 2018, Corporate Property transferred the first floor of the council owned building located at 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson to Community Facilities to allow community use of the premises.

3.       For a council owned building, it is good practice to identify alternatives for the use of the premises.  An expression of interest process can be undertaken to gauge interest and best use.

4.       If a group already established in the community is performing well and continues to be needed in the area and is seeking alternative accommodation,  the Henderson-Massey Local Board has the authority to grant a new community lease to a group without undergoing an expression of interest process.

5.       The property is held in fee simple by Auckland Council under the Local Government Act 2002.  Under Section 138 of the Act a local authority granting a lease for more than six months must consult on the proposal.  Prior to any lease being granted, engagement with mana whenua is also required under section 81 of the Act.

6.       This report recommends that the Henderson-Massey Local Board forego an expressions of interest process and approve a new community lease to Community Waitakere Charitable Trust for premises located at Cranwell Park, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson.

 

Ngā tūtohunga

Recommendation/s

That the Henderson-Massey Local Board:

a)      approve a new community lease to Community Waitakere Charitable Trust for 800 m2 (more or less) on part of Cranwell Park, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson, described as Part Lot 6 DP 1467, (Attachment A), subject to one months’ public notification and with no objections, on the following terms and conditions:-

i)        term – five years commencing 20 October 2020 with one right of renewal of five years;

ii)       rent - $1.00 plus GST per annum if demanded;

iii)      maintenance fee - $1,000 plus GST per annum;

iv)      provision of a community outcomes plan as approved by local board members and attached to the lease document.

v)      all other terms and conditions in accordance with the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines July 2012 and the Local Government Act 2002.

 

Horopaki

Context

7.       This report considers leasing part of the council-owned building known as the Zeal building, Level 1, Cranwell Park, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson. 

8.       The Henderson-Massey Local Board is the allocated authority relating to local, recreation, sport and community facilities, including community leasing matters.

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

The Land

9.       The 7.5-hectare site is zoned public open space and is classified as a park under the Local Government Act 2002.

10.     Under Section 138 of the Act a local authority granting a lease for more than six months must consult on the proposal.

11.     Prior to any lease being granted, engagement with mana whenua is also required under section 81 of the Act.

Zeal Building, 20 Alderman Drive, Henderson

12.     20 Alderman Drive is a two-level building forming part of the West Wave public swimming pool and recreational complex.  The facilities are part of a comprehensive recreational precinct which also includes the Henderson Bowling Club, Henderson Croquet Club, Barnardo’s NZ and Zeal Education Trust.

13.     The premises are located on Level 1 of the Zeal building and has a rectangular shaped floor of approximately 800m2.  The space is a mixture of offices and an open plan area with a central kitchen and amenities hub.

8 Ratanui Street, Henderson (current premises)

14.     Community Waitakere has been managing and operating its services from this building known as the Waitakere Community Resource Centre, 8 Ratanui Street, Henderson since 1995.  The building and land are owned privately and leased-in by council with a licence to occupy the site granted to Community Waitakere for a term of three years commencing 1 July 2015 to align with the lease-in term.

15.     Over the term of the licence to occupy there has been a number of issues relating to the building and location at Ratanui Street.  A growth in services offered has restricted the ability for Community Waitakere to accommodate the needs of its community and a larger space is required.

Community Waitakere

16.     Community Waitakere has submitted a comprehensive lease application and is able to demonstrate viability to continue to deliver its services to the community.

17.     Community Waitakere has been part of the West Auckland community since 1983 and has been registered as a charitable trust since 10 December 2007.  Its objectives are to:

-     advocate for the community and voluntary sector at a local, regional and national levels

-     work collaboratively with other organisations, local government and central government to improve the wellbeing of people primarily but not exclusively in west Auckland

-     foster local leadership so that neighbourhoods and community organisations are resilient and sustainable.

18.     Community Waitakere is a community development organisation committed to achieving connected, thriving and sustainable West Auckland communities. This is achieved by strengthening the links between groups by promoting and modelling collaboration, enhancing networking and communication, developing community projects and helping to foster collective visions for positive change.

19.     Community Waitakere will continue to provide these services and activities. The new premises will provide offices, hot desks and meeting and learning spaces for other community good organisations in the west including eco/social enterprises.

20.     A lease term of five years with one five year right of renewal is recommended under the Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines 2012.

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

21.     This area is a flood prone area.  Flooding occurs when heavy rainfall overwhelms the capacity of natural or designed drainage systems.  Flood prone areas are low points that may flood and are often associated with places where water can become trapped and pool if an outlet is blocked.  These areas are also associated with 1-in-100-year rainfall events. It is not anticipated that flooding will affect these premises, being on the upper floor, but access to the building may be affected for short periods during a flood event.

22.     The designated impact level of the recommended decision on green-house gas emissions falls within the “no impact” category because the proposal continues an existing activity and does not introduce new sources of emissions.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

23.     In compiling the report and recommendations contained herein, staff have obtained input from colleagues in the Arts, Community and Events Department, Operational Management and Maintenance and Parks Sports and Recreation.  No concerns were raised regarding the proposed lease to Community Waitakere.

24.     The repair of the air conditioning system will need to be completed before the space is activated and able to be occupied by Community Waitakere. 

25.     The building is part of a seismic pilot programme for Detailed Retrofit Design.  Detailed retrofit design, consents, local board engagement and procurement processes are required before any physical works can commence.  A high level of engagement with the lessee to minimise disruptions will be undertaken.

Ngā whakaaweawe ā-rohe me ngā tirohanga a te poari ā-rohe

Local impacts and local board views

26.     The recommendations in this report were workshopped with the local board on 27 August 2019.

27.     The recommendation for a new lease to Community Waitakere supports the Henderson-Massey Local Board plan 2017 outcomes:

·        a network of vibrant and loved urban neighbourhoods

·        a thriving local economy that supports quality of life

·        communities know each other and work together on common interests

·        community facilities are vibrant and welcoming places at the heart of our community.

28.     The Auckland Council Community Occupancy Guidelines 2012 recommends a lease term for council-owned land and/or buildings of five years with one further five year right of renewal.

29.     The Henderson-Massey Local Board may, at their discretion, choose to vary from these recommendations on a case-by-case basis as they deem appropriate.  The guidelines suggest that where a term is varied, it aligns to one of the recommended terms contained in the guidelines.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

30.     Delivering on Auckland Council’s commitment to Māori at a local level is a priority for local boards.  Henderson-Massey Local Board is focused on building strong and meaningful relationships with local Māori to ensure that Māori needs and aspirations are understood.

31.     Iwi engagement was undertaken with mana whenua identified as having an interest in the land located at 20 Alderman Drive.  Engagement involved:

·    writing to mana whenua with detailed information on the reserve and the group and inviting iwi representatives to hui and or for a kaitiaki site visit to comment on any spiritual, cultural, or environmental impact with respect to the proposal.

32.     No objections were received by the mana whenua representatives who responded.

33.     A community outcomes plan will be developed with Community Waitakere to include activities that support Māori outcomes and Auckland Council’s commitment to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its broader legal obligations to Māori.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

34.     Provided there are no objections, the cost implications for Auckland Council is the cost of public notification of the lease estimated at approximately $750.00. This cost is borne by the Community Facilities Department.

35.     Rent will be $1.00 plus GST per annum and the maintenance fee will be $1,000 plus GST per annum.

36.     The Lead Financial Advisor for the Henderson-Massey Local Board has indicated there are no other financial implications.  

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

37.     If the Henderson-Massey Local Board resolve not to grant a new lease to Community Waitakere Charitable Trust the council-owned building will remain vacant which in turn will have a negative impact on the desired local board outcomes.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

38.     Subject to the Henderson-Massey Local Board granting a new community lease, council staff will work with Community Waitakere Charitable Trust to finalise the lease agreement.

a)      receive Auckland Transport’s update for October 2020.

Horopaki

Context

3.       AT is responsible for all of Auckland’s transport services, excluding state highways. It reports on a monthly basis to local boards, as set out in its Local Board Engagement Plan. This monthly reporting commitment acknowledges the important engagement role of local boards within and on behalf of their local communities. 

4.       This report updates the Henderson-Massey Local Board on AT projects and operations in the local board area, it updates the local board on their consultations and includes information on the status of the Local Board Transport Capital Fund (LBTCF).

5.       The Community Safety Fund is a capital budget established by AT for use by local boards to fund local road safety initiatives. The purpose of this fund is to allow elected members to address long-standing local road safety issues that are not regional priorities and are therefore not being addressed by the AT programme.

 

6.       The LBTCF is a capital budget provided to all local boards by Auckland Council and delivered by AT. Local boards can use this fund to deliver transport infrastructure projects that they believe are important but are not part of AT’s work programme. Projects must also:

·   be safe

·   not impede network efficiency

·   be in the road corridor (although projects running through parks can be considered if there is a transport outcome).

Tātaritanga me ngā tohutohu

Analysis and advice

7.       Following the setting of the Emergency Budget the LBTCF programme received $5,000,000 for the 2020/2021 year for allocation across the 21 local boards.

8.       Decisions about the 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 financial years will form part of the Long-term Plan/Regional Land Transport Plan discussions but early indications are that these years will also see a more constrained capital programme than prior to the COVID crisis.

9.       Advice from the Auckland Transport Finance Department set the following criteria for the fund following the setting of the Emergency Budget:

·   The $5,000,000 for 2020/2021 will be split using the Local Board Funding Policy

·   Currently, with budgets unknown for 2021/2022 and 2022/2023 boards are unable to combine future years allocations into a single project.

·   Boards are encouraged to target delivery of smaller projects or complete design and documentation for a project that can be physically delivered in 2021/2022.

10.     The Henderson-Massey Local Board’s share of the 2020/2021 allocation is $349,265.

11.     Auckland Transport attended a workshop with the Board on Tuesday, 25 August 2020 where a progress report was given on the Board’s 2016-2019 LBTCF projects as well as discussion on how to plan for the next two years as it appears that budgets will continue to be constrained.

12.     At the workshop, AT outlined some options on how to deliver a number of projects over the next three years with the available budget. A separate report will be presented at the Local Board November 2020 meeting asking the Board to confirm its LBTCF expenditure for 2020/2021.

Changes to Bus and Ferry Services

13.     Auckland Transport is making some changes to bus and ferry services.

14.     These changes will:

·   enable cost savings with as little impact on customers as possible

·   better suit the needs of some areas

·   involve the removal of some duplicative and poorly performing services

·   add more electric buses, better connectivity, and services to new developments

·   add increased capacity on some routes.

Cost savings

15.     Auckland Transport is making cost savings in its public transport budget to contribute to the overall cost savings Auckland Council is required to make following the COVID-19 pandemic. This requires a reduction in public transport service operations.

16.     The cost savings fall into three broad categories: 

·   Peak only services 

·   Poor performing routes 

·   Ferry changes  


 

Improvements

17.     In addition, AT will also make some important improvements to provide better services to areas in most need.

When is this happening

·   20 December 2020 for 728, 729 bus services

·   25 December 2020 for Stanley Bay ferry

·   24 January 2021 for all other changes

18.     Timetables, Journey Planner and AT Mobile app will be updated closer to the date of the changes.

What is the detail - Bus Changes

19.     West:

·   Changes to 151X, 171X and 172X bus services from Monday 25 January 2021

·   Introduction of Sunday bus services for 171 from Sunday 24 January 2021

·   Removing 114 bus service from Herald Island from Sunday 24 January 2021

 

Ferry Changes

20.     Removal of Stanley Bay ferry service. Last trip 24 December 2020

21.     Additional ferry services for Hobsonville and Beach Haven from 25 January 2021

22.     Additional shoulder peak ferry services for West Harbour and Pine Harbour from January 2021 both to be confirmed

23.     Birkenhead ferry timetable changes to be confirmed

24.     From 16 September, details of these changes will be on the AT website at AT.govt.nz/metrochanges.

Future Connect (AT’s long-term plan for Auckland’s future integrated transport system)

25.     Future Connect will be AT’s long-term plan for Auckland’s future integrated transport system. It maps Auckland’s Strategic Networks, the most critical links of our current and future transport system and will ultimately set a 30-year vision for all modes: public transport, general traffic, freight, cycle and walking.

26.     Strategic Networks have been investigated to surface critical problems, opportunities and Focus Areas. This will help inform the development of the Regional Land Transport Plan (our 10-year investment programme) and will guide future planning and investment.

27.     Future Connect was introduced to Local Board Chairs at the 14 September Chairs Forum. In October and November, the project team will be available to talk to interested Local Board Transport Representatives. This will be an opportunity to provide a more detailed project overview, answer questions, seek local knowledge and opportunities for alignment with Local Board Plans

Tauākī whakaaweawe āhuarangi

Climate impact statement

28.     Auckland Transport engages closely with Council on developing strategy, actions and measures to support the outcomes sought by the Auckland Plan 2050, the Auckland Climate Action Plan and Council’s priorities.

29.     Auckland Transport’s core role is in providing attractive alternatives to private vehicle travel, reducing the carbon footprint of its own operations and, to the extent feasible, that of the contracted public transport network.

Ngā whakaaweawe me ngā tirohanga a te rōpū Kaunihera

Council group impacts and views

30.     The impact of information in this report is mainly confined to Auckland Transport.  Where LBTCF projects are being progressed by Auckland Council’s Community Facilities group, engagement on progress has taken place. Any further engagement required with other parts of the Council group will be carried out on an individual project basis.

Local impacts and local board views

Safety Issues at the intersection of Awaroa Road and Great North Road, Henderson

31.     Auckland Transport have investigated the concerns raised by a number of Local Board members and at this stage no additional measures are suggested. While the crash history is perceived as high, the crash history from NZ Police doesn’t support this.  

32.     Several factors are carefully considered as part of this assessment, and these include:

·      traffic speeds

·      crash history

·      the topography of the area

33.     It is important we undertake this type of assessment as Auckland Transport receives many requests. With requests outnumbering the locations that can be treated, sites with high crash numbers as well as higher traffic volumes are prioritised, or areas where patterns of risk are emerging.

34.     Awaroa Road and Great North Road intersection hasn’t been identified as a priority site. This is due to other areas in the region experiencing higher speeds and safety risk, and therefore the need to be prioritised.

35.     Auckland Transport will continue to monitor this situation, and should the situation change we will re-investigate.

Enforcement on Kotuku and Toru Street

36.     Auckland Transport do have regular parking enforcement on both Kotuku and Toru Street.  As these are interim measures, we are not planning to make any further changes, however the changes will be in the final permanent design which AT hope to deliver in January February next year.  This is subject to funding.

Local Board Issues Being Investigated

37.     The Local board has requested the following issues be investigated.  These are still under investigation:

38.     Various of safety and roading issues on Hewlett and Waimumu Roads

39.     Glendene Pavement repairs

40.     Pedestrian Crossing request- Great North Road /Kirby Avenue (between the Glendene shops and the Felgrove Street lights)

41.     Shared footpath along the Henderson Creek and Oratia Stream shared pathway roading issues

42.     Jaemont Road/Te Atatu Road, Te Atatu South roading Issues

43.     Roberts Road Traffic Calming request.

Consultation documents on proposed improvements

44.     Consultation documents for the following proposals have been provided to the Henderson-Massey Local Board for its feedback and are summarised below for information purposes only.

45.     After consultation, Auckland Transport considers the feedback received and determines whether to proceed further with the proposal as consulted on or proceed with an amended proposal if changes are considered necessary.

46.     Consultation on installation of Sturges Road bus stop and Shelter

47.     Auckland Council development of recreational reserve, Kopupaka Reserve, Westgate, new parking controls.

48.     Proposal for new Bus Layover on Harbour View Road, Te Atatu

49.     Proposal for intersection improvements on Parrs Cross Road and Bruce McLaren Road, Henderson

50.     Proposal for artwork wrap to be installed on Exeloo in Fernhill Drive, Westgate.

Tauākī whakaaweawe Māori

Māori impact statement

52.     There are no specific impacts on Māori for this reporting period. AT is committed to meeting its responsibilities under Te Tiriti o Waitangi-the Treaty of Waitangi-and its broader legal obligations in being more responsive or effective to Māori. Our Maori Responsiveness Plan outlines the commitment to with 19 mana whenua tribes in delivering effective and well-designed transport policy and solutions for Auckland. We also recognise mataawaka and their representative bodies and our desire to foster a relationship with them. This plan is available on the Auckland Transport website- https://at.govt.nz/about-us/transport-plans-strategies/maori-responsiveness-plan/#about.

Ngā ritenga ā-pūtea

Financial implications

53.     The proposed decision of receiving the report has no financial implications for the Henderson-Massey Harbour Local Board.

Ngā raru tūpono me ngā whakamaurutanga

Risks and mitigations

54.       Auckland Council adopted its Emergency Budget 2020/2021 at the end of July. AT’s capital and operating budgets have been reduced through this process and some projects are planned for 2020/2021 may not be able to be delivered.

55.     Both the Community Safety Fund and the Local Board Transport Capital Fund are impacted by these budget reductions.

56.     AT did attend workshops in August 2020 to discuss with local boards how to get best value from their 2020/2021 LBTCF allocations. Community Safety projects will continue in design and will be delivered once funds become available.

Ngā koringa ā-muri

Next steps

57.     Auckland Transport will provide another update report to the Board in November 2020.

Climate impact statement

12.     The Local Board Grants Programme aims to respond to Auckland Council’s commitment to address climate change by providing grants to individuals and groups for projects that support and enable community climate action. Community climate action involves reducing or responding to climate change by local residents in a locally relevant way. Local board grants can contribute to expanding climate action by supporting projects that reduce carbon emissions and increase community resilience to climate impacts. Examples of projects include local food production and food waste reduction; increasing access to single-occupancy transport options; home energy efficiency and community renewable energy generation; local tree planting and streamside revegetation; and educating about sustainable lifestyle choices that reduce carbon footprints.

Project: Dance 4 Us West

Location:

Hubwest, 27 Corban Avenue, Henderson, Auckland

Summary:

Dance 4 Us community-based workshops were specifically designed to be enjoyed by people with intellectual and/or physical disabilities, catering to adults with special needs including (but not limited to) Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Angelman Syndrome, and other disabilities. The sessions are geared to enhance the quality of life of our attendees, forming a community where attendees are valued and celebrated as they are, while they foster social relationships with one another. Our workshops invite active participation through dance and movement where participants get to explore their own unique talents, culture and creativity in a safe and accepting environment.

Expertise:

Dance & Arts Therapy NZ (DTNZ) has been running since 2010, gaining charitable trust status in 2013. Our therapy team is made up of qualified and highly experienced Dance Movement and Arts therapists who have been rigorously trained either in Aotearoa New Zealand, or through reputable international organisations. DTNZ provides supervision to our therapists who facilitate clinical groups including Dance 4 Us West for both client and therapist safety, and to ensure a sustainable approach to every programme is maintained.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The main community outcomes of Dance 4 Us are inclusion, skill-building, and community participation for adults with intellectual and/or physical disabilities. By providing a programme where people of all abilities and needs can participate and be included, this will help them feel a sense of community belonging and acceptance. In the past year we had 685 visits to Dance 4 Us West, which is reflective of a decrease in attendance numbers during the pandemic. We anticipate these numbers to increase to 822, based on 2019 and prior years.  
Our workshop sessions focus on building cultural awareness and aim to equip adults and young adults with the self-regulation and social skills needed to participate in other community activities. We encourage all of our participants to be confident and active members of society by improving their self-esteem, mobility and ability to communicate their thoughts and emotions in an effective way.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      diversity and difference is embraced and valued

 

The main priority of Dance 4 Us West is to ensure that those with special needs and physical disabilities in our community feel embraced and valued. We hold weekly sessions on Friday mornings at Hubwest, and only request a gold coin koha to participate. 
 
During a time in our society where there has been a great deal of change to routine and “the norm”, we aim to be a consistent pillar to this community. Adults and young adults are encouraged to be active, creative, and expressive. In the process they get to meet and socialise with other people faced with familiar disabilities, learn about themselves, and skills which they can use in their day to day lives. 
 
Our highly experienced and qualified therapy team are on hand to support our people, who might find it difficult or too expensive to participate in mainstream dance groups because of their differences. We provide additional care and a helping hand wherever needed. Our programme promotes the emotional, social, cognitive, and physical integration of the individual, offering a holistic approach to healing.

Project: "The Search for the Selfish Elves" (short film post-production)

Location:

Te Atatu Peninsula

Summary:

Post-Production of Brickworks Drama School's short film, "The Search for the Selfish Elves" (shot over nine shoot days from August to October with funding from the Creative Communities Scheme, and Brickworks Drama School's own funds). Your funding will cover: professional editing; sound mix; and colour grade; visual effects production; project management and direction; and costs of hosting a community "premiere" at The Chapel. Friends and whanau of the children and youth will gather to watch the film and celebrate their children's achievement. The short film (15 minutes) will explore the unique way Te Atatu's Christmas traditions bring our community together, and what Christmas means to us. Its overriding theme is Kindness, which has also become New Zealand's focus in 2020.

Expertise:

We have delivered three years of screen acting workshops, and several Brickworks parents work in the film industry. Brickworks co-director Lauren Jackson is an award-winning short film maker whose films have played at international and national festivals, including the Berlin Film Festival and Cannes. Her films centre on the stories of children and youth (links to both films provided, plus references from Lauren's producers). Lauren and Natascha have professional screen acting experience and considerable experience creating shows and projects for youth (see their biographies, attached). Helen Olliver has created the sets for our last three stage productions, while Jon Hill has over 20 years experience in the film and TV industry. Tania Smiler runs her own visual effects company.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Creative support network
Our community-centred approach involves researching stories and settings within Te Atatu; working with the children to build the stories; then presenting them back to the community. We invite local creatives such as artist Helen Ollivier (set designer) and TV professional Jon Hill (director of photography and editor) to collaborate with us, and mentor our students. Te Atatu locals, Tania Smiler (special effects), Narelle Ahrens (foley artist) and Julian Wilson (actor) are also working on the film. Each of these creatives has children at Brickworks Drama School (as do directors Lauren and Natascha). In this way we are building a local creative network that supports and nurtures our local children and youth. 
Value sharing
This film will create a lasting memory - a snapshot in time of our community at its most caring, with children as its heroes. 
Mental Health
We want to hire a red carpet and book our home venue, The Chapel, for a December 12th premiere. We'll celebrate five years of Brickworks Drama School with the movie premiere, plus a bloopers reel; and interviews with the students. We'll share food and reflect on the values of Christmas and togetherness that draw our community together.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      strong community organisations are making a difference

 

Brickworks Drama School is a strong community organisation making a difference. We are seeking funding from Henderson Massey Local Board to complete and screen a short film we are shooting with 50 West Auckland (primarily Te Atatu) children and youth. The post-production and screening (at a local "premiere" supports Brickworks making a difference in the following ways:
Participation  Participation in our short film, "The Search for the Selfish Elves", gives 50 Te Atatu children and youth the opportunity to experience the film pre-production, production, and post-production process, guided by industry professionals. 
Citizenship
It also offers them the opportunity to engage with the ideas of citizenship, community and kindness at Christmas time (and hopefully all year round). Its themes of kindness and togetherness will give the students pride in their community and enhance their commitment to the area and its people. 
Identity
In the process they will gain a fresh perspective on their own identity; and what they can contribute to their community. 
Access
Your support will enable us to offer the experience of shooting a professional-quality film the students and their whanau can then treasure. Filmmaking is still a difficult form of creativity to access due to the expense of equipment and high level of technical expertise required. We will take the children and youth beyond homemade You Tube clips into the finer details of storytelling on film at no cost to them. We would like to emphasise that the short film creation takes place outside of term class time. While the students pay a term fee of $110 each to attend regular classes, they pay nothing to be in this short film. Unlike other dance and drama schools, we charge the students no fees to be involved in this extra activity, preferring to fund it ourselves and with grants.We do this to encourage diversity and broad participation in such activities. We have seen first-hand (in other local after-school activities) how some children are excluded from performance opportunities when an extra fee is requested, and want to avoid this scenario. It is important to us that all Brickworks students have the chance to participate. 
Self-esteem
"The Search for the Selfish Elves" will promote self-esteem, communication skills, teamwork, self-confidence, empathy and community engagement. We value the creative process as much as the excitement of sharing the film. This project will enable Brickworks drama students to experience both, by developing skills in rehearsal with the rare opportunity to capture it all on film, then share the film with their friends and families.
 
Summary
"The Search for the Selfish Elves" will help our students:
- understand and reflect on themselves and their strengths
- develop curiosity
- develop empathy
- challenge themselves
- support others through the challenge of creation, rehearsal and performance
- express themselves in a supportive environment
- actively engage with local stories
- become communicators
 
Please find attached feedback from parents of our students on our last school show - "Dawn's Enchanted Collection" as proof of community appreciation of Brickworks Drama School and the value of our full-school productions. We also attach some photos and a short timelapse video of "Dawn's Enchanted Collection" to show you the quality of our productions.
 
Please also find attached links to images and videos of the film shoot, and links to Lauren Jackson's short films, and a link to an early short film by esteemed New Zealand filmmaker Jackie Van Beek - an adaptation of Little Red Riding Hood Jackie created with drama students who have special needs. We believe this is a powerful example of what community film projects can achieve. Jackie's film received critical acclaim.

Conflicts of interest:

None identified

Project: The Period Place - Period Products and Education

Location:

Henderson-Massey local board area

Summary:

There is need in these areaa for people with periods to access period products and
corresponding educational information. With a health pandemic underway, we are all
coping with the changes to our environments, and marginalised people face further issues
accessing products to manage their periods in ways that are meaningful to them. Stores are
frequently stripped of these essential products, leaving no safe alternatives, where people
turn to cheap disposable products, or worse, are not able to manage their periods and use
items that are unhygienic, which effects a health system that is already under pressure.
Environmentally sustainable period products such as reusable pads, period underwear and
menstrual cups can provide safe, healthy choices for people to manage their periods.

Expertise:

Many successful projects delivered including a public period market, a national period industry hui, an art and education activation, partnerships nationwide and locally, national advocacy, working closely with central government, sponsored initiatives and other local board initiatives to name a few. Our website documents all our activities.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

We reduce barriers to access by increasing availability to products; provide pathways for
people to learn about then access period products that are environmentally sustainable;
increase quality education and provide information on periods so that people can increase
their knowledge; and enable positive conversations by openly discussing periods and
reducing negative stigma. Together, these pathways provide autonomy, provide positive
outcomes for the physical environment, increase quality of life, improve physical and mental
health and foster period equity particularly amongst marginalised groups.
We have links throughout the local board area, including within ATEED, and local schools and community organisations like Youth West.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      strong community organisations are making a difference
We provide many pathways, from personal assistance, to large community initiatives, to
events and online discussions, for people to be empowered to learn about and discuss periods while removing any barriers to access along the way and addressing period inequity
at a systems level.
There is an urgent need in this area for people with periods to be able to access period
products and corresponding educational information. With a health pandemic underway,
we are all coping with the changes to our environments, and marginalised people face
further issues accessing products with which to manage their periods in ways that are
meaningful to them. Stores are frequently stripped of these essential products, leaving no
safe alternatives, where people turn to cheap disposable products, or worse, are not able to
manage their periods and use items that are unhygienic, which effects a health system that
is already under pressure. Environmentally sustainable period products such as reusable
pads, period underwear and menstrual cups can provide safe, healthy choices for people to
manage their periods.

Māori outcomes:

·      Māori focus - tikanga (practices), mātauranga (knowledge), reo (language)

Our approach provides more than a temporary solution; we work alongside communities,
trusting their direction and providing a platform for them to tackle issues of period inequity
most poignant to them; we bring organisations together to share and collaborate to
address period inequity as a group; we ensure access to period products, education and
conversations are provided together. We know that without education, people are less
likely to access products or know how to use them, hesitant to try environmentally-aware
products, and period equity isn't addressed at its core, leaving people in the same situation
we found them in and sometimes worse off. We introduce a new approach to period inequity
where stigma is addressed, knowledge increased and autonomy amplified.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Through working with specific community organisations. We are an inclusive organisation who understands many people get periods and have differing issues of access, conversation and education.

Summary:

Enabling five young people from the Henderson-Massey 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 are wider than juts the five students participating. It 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:

 

·      people know each other and feel connected in their neighbourhoods

 

Blue Light's project is to send five young people from the Henderson 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 Henderson-Massey 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 Henderson-Massey 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: 3 Maternity Chairs/Beds for Whanau

Location:

Waitakere Hospital

Summary:

The maternity wards at Waitakere Hospital lack the ability for partners/whanau/support person to stay overnight with women giving birth to their baby. Partners/support people are able to provide additional individual support to women particularly after a traumatic birth or caesarian. On the conclusion of visitor hours partners/support people were asked to leave the hospital. This can often be quite an emotional and challenging time for women. If we provide breast feeding/support person bed-chairs we can keep whānau together. The hospital needs 26 in total and this application is for three maternity chairs to keep whānau together at a precious and stressful time.

Expertise:

Well Foundation has, with the generous support of our donors/partners, delivered over 70 projects across the Waitematā DHB region. A total of $10,298,422 has been donated to projects, funded in conjunction with the DHB. Including the introduction of 2 mobile dental
clinics and a mobile community health clinic, the purchase and delivery of remote patient monitoring devices, simulator manikins, a MAKO surgical robot and a transport incubator for Waitakere Hospital SCBU. The Foundation has also delivered capital projects with the DHB, including the air bridge at North Shore Hospital and Chapels at both hospitals. Well Foundation currently sits on the steering group for two capital projects – Waitakere SCBU and the region’s Breast Service, both will be delivered in 2021.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Keeping whanau together during a stressful and precious time. 
More connected whanau/families once baby is able to go home.
Enables dads to spend special alone time together as a new family. 
Support from new dads, new grandparents or other close family is welcome as it complements the care provided by staff, and new mums feel less anxious when they know they have someone close by to help them. 
Empowering patients further by reducing barriers to healthcare provision, particularly within vulnerable groups, is vital to our communities. 
The improved comfort of partners/whanau/ support people staying overnight will enhance sleep and their wellbeing to support women
on discharge, achieving better outcomes.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·      strong community organisations are making a difference

 

The maternity wards at Waitakere Hospital see a diverse range of women giving birth every day (different cultures respond to health-related situations, diverse health beliefs, faith-based practices, different health seeking behaviours and expectations from health systems) and the ward needs to provide health care that meets all patient’s needs. However, the current maternity wards lack the ability for partners/whanau/support person to stay overnight with women giving birth to their baby. The current situation does not provide mothers/mothers to be and their partners/whanau/support people with a sense of belonging, especially when support people are able to provide additional individual support to women particularly after a traumatic birth or caesarian. On the conclusion of visitor hours partners/support people were asked to leave the hospital. This can often be quite an emotional and challenging time for women, leaving them feeling very alone and vulnerable. Through education, the ward now encourages partners/whanau/support people to stay overnight. Partners/support people staying overnight complement the care that is being provided by nursing staff and provide additional emotional support. Unfortunately, our maternity wards are not equipped to support partners/people overnight. This application supports a strong organisation making a difference in the community, by keeping families together during a stressful and lifechanging time, providing a sense of belonging for families in their community and in their hospital, by providing maternity chairs for support people/partners/whanau to stay with their loved ones. Empowering patients further by reducing barriers to healthcare provision, particularly within vulnerable groups, is vital for our communities.

 

Collaborating organisation/individual

Role

Waitakere Hospital (Waitemata DHB)

New mums and partners/whanau/support people will be patients at Waikatere Hospital. The chairs will be located within the maternity wards at Waitakere Hospital. Nurses will support the operational use of the reclining chairs.

 

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

·      Māori involvement in the design/concept, Māori participation - Māori priority group, target group, high representation or Māori staff delivering

The breast feeding/whanau/support person bed-chair project is in direct response to patient and staff feedback (including Maori) of what matters to women and will enhance patient and whanau experience. 
The availability of a support person will alleviate anxiety and complement nursing care. This in turn will improve health outcomes, and enable women to manage the needs of their new born baby. The improved comfort of partners/whanau/support people staying overnight will enhance sleep and their wellbeing to support women on discharge, achieving better whanau outcomes.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - This project benefits all mums having their babies at North Shore Hospital. The chairs
have been selected to ensure that they are accessible for mums and support people with
disabilities.

Target ethnic groups:

All/everyone

Healthy environment approach:

·      Promote smoke-free messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice

Waitemata DHB is a recognised smoke free environment and workplace. Our buildings and
grounds are smoke-free.
Smoking is not permitted by staff, patients, contractors or members of the public in any
area on the North Shore or Waitakere Hospital sites. The Ministry's health target better help
for smokers to quit is a driver towards the aspirational goal of Smokefree 2025.
Waitemata District Health Board (DHB) provides an environment that supports healthy food
and beverage options.
It demonstrates commitment to the health and wellbeing of staff and visitors by providing
healthy eating and beverage options, which support a balanced diet. We are working with
the Ministry of Health and other DHBs to implement a nationally agreed DHB healthy food
and drinks policy. The Waitemata DHB retailers continue to make healthier choices the easy
choice.
