Project: TRF Programme Coordinator operating costs

Location:

Papakura High School - Willis Rd Papakura

Summary:

This grant we are requesting is to cover operating costs for our full-time TRF Programme Coordinator based at Papakura High School. TRF deliver a mentor/leadership programme for Year 9 to Year 13 students throughout their five year High School journey. By supporting our Programme Coordinator in his work, you will be contributing to his influence which is a catalyst for the transformation of the lives of the young people in his care. Our students in turn, have a positive influence on their broader whanau and community. So with this grant you are enabling our students to have a stable, reliable, positive and inspiring adult to walk alongside them during their most turbulent and developmentally important five years of their lives.

Expertise:

Our charity was established in December 2010 and at the time privately funded by John and Diane Bongard. John Bongard our founder grew up in South Auckland and attended Papakura High School. John wanted to give back to the community, especially the Youth to “unlock their potential”.  Our focus remains as a break through programme to support adolescents in challenging personal circumstances to “rise up” and to build positive lives.  The Rising Foundation’s aim is for our secondary school students to build strong characteristics, recognise their leadership ability, become trustworthy and responsible people and leave our care into tertiary education or full time employment.  We currently employee seven Programme Coordinators who are now based in five different secondary schools.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

1. Our students benefit from being part of The Rising Foundation because they are encouraged to excel in life and in academic achievement.
2. They benefit from having the backing of a professional and accredited team who know how to deal with the complex issues of adolescence. 3. Our students form deep friendships and supportive relationships, they learn to be honest with themselves and with others.
4. Our students’ families and schools benefit because our students are more polite, respectful, responsible, caring, grateful, collaborative and cooperative.
5. Our students choose to avoid; using violence, abusing substances and resorting to self-harm or suicide.
6. Our students are confident and wholehearted.
7. Our communities benefit because every year 20-30 of our students graduate and historically all but a couple go into full-time work, tertiary education or trade training which is great for the community.
8. Our students leave our programme with a full driver’s licence and with a solid pathway and ongoing support into meaningful employment.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support communities and individuals within Papakura to achieve their goals and aspirations

 

Getting well paid and meaningful work helps our graduates to contribute more to their families and communities. Seeing their own potential to gain a higher level of education and employment brings better prospects and greater hope for the future. Our students leave high school and begin their adult lives with a clear sense of who they are and what they want in life. We have an active network of industry training providers, tertiary institutions and employers who are seeking honest, motivated and responsible young people
our programme produces. From Year 10 we encourage our ākonga to focus on personal, educational and career goals. Our annual 'Careers Camp' and ‘Workplace Exposure weeks’ are geared to provide a glimpse of real work life. This will in turn help students and recent graduates, to talk to people from similar backgrounds in their chosen industries, to confirm the direction is right for them. We see the transition from the world of school to the world of work as a vital time for ensuring a healthy start to adult life. We give our graduates every possible practical help to ensure they navigate this period successfully. In addition to these practical supports, our in-school programme helps each student to stay in touch with their personal, family and cultural identities and to grow in empathy and compassion for the needs of the people around them. This forms the context for their career choices and their growing role as leaders of influence in their communities.

Promote smoke-free messages, Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

We promote substance free living and actively reinforce the smoke free and substances free message promoted through the schools we serve.
We promote healthy food and drink options on camps/excursions and during our lunch time meetings. We only provide water at camps and meetings. 
In collaborating with KiwiHarvest, we also deliver healthy food packages once a week to those families who we see as needing a 'hand up' to provide for their whanau.  This also reduces the waste of food as near expired items are donated to whanau.
We always reinforce healthy lifestyles and encourage our students and staff to participate in outdoor games and boot camps which are provided free of charge within some communities.

Advertising our Museum by external signage aids passers by to realise Papakura has a Museum.  This  encourages children, families and schools to  visit  and engage in our activities and exhibitions which also  helps our local community to learn more about our  history.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Highlights and celebrates Papakura’s history and heritage

 

The external signage promotes Papakura's Museum and its history this will be seen by passing cars and pedestrians from both sides of the street. The majority of our visitors access the museum via the car park from Beach road and the signage will clearly be visible by those commuters. The advertising is also clearly seen from the New World car park which will cover locals who may be unaware of the Museum's existence.

Identified community outcomes:

 

A gorgeous tree dressed for Christmas to celebrate the Christmas season, lighting in place in the town in the Centre Court area ( which helps with safety and security as well ).  Makes the town more appealing to our community and customers which in turn helps our businesses with retail shopping and trade and ties in with the other elements of Christmas that is happening in Papakura.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support communities and individuals within Papakura to achieve their goals and aspirations

 

The Stars in the Big Tree in Centre Court - and this year the wrapping of the tree trunk as well makes our town look so attractive and festive for the Christmas Period, and in turn makes people feel good about coming into town, doing their shopping in the town and ultimately helps the businesses in the town, which in turn drives economic development for Papakura.  The PBA also puts up 100 Christmas flags throughout the town as well to compliment the stars and dressing of the Centre Court tree.  Music is held on the little stage area and our new LIve Papakura Sign will be lit up as well which will look beautiful in the centre of town, and a visual symphony for people who drive by or come into town.  The lights are a focal point for the town and are part of a co ordinated Christmas Campaign of flags, stars, decorations and lights - along with a Santa Grotto, Santa, free Santa photos and gift wrapping as well.  Christmas time is a time of celebration and the lights in the tree play a big part.

Project: Whanau Hotaka

Location:

Papakura

Summary:

The Kura Cares Trust has created a programme aimed at supporting our Whānau to move out of the poverty cycle.  Working in partnership with various organisations, the Whānau Hotaka programme 2022 / 2023 draws on the insights we gained from our COVID-19 community relief work and the collaborative opportunities that emerged through the networks we have built since incorporating in 2020. We connect local tamariki to sponsored school uniforms, invite their whanau to access free financial literacy sessions, draw on our cultural values and relational approach to ensure the sessions are relevant and engaging for whanau, connect them to new financial opportunities and pathways, and celebrate their growth, learning and achievements at the end of the programme.

Expertise:

We have been in operation for over 3 years helping whanau in Papakura with food and working alongside CAPS to provide budgeting services for whanau to help them get out of their challenging current financial situations. Our main focus to date has been COVID response and relief efforts. In 2022 we are formalising our financial literacy support work into a pilot whanau programme. Project planning has already been completed.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Being able to provide whanau in our community with kai, temporary essential support, and an opportunity to upskill and advance their knowledge on financial literacy and debt management, and help them achieve their whanau financial goals. Building whanau financial literacy will address poverty levels and lift income equity in Papakura, resulting in reduced social issues and a healthier, thriving community overall. The intergenerational benefits will mean that tamariki are growing up in healthier home situations, with more options and opportunities available to them, which creates a more positive future for the Papakura community.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support communities and individuals within Papakura to achieve their goals and aspirations

 

Kura Cares has seen first-hand the struggle that many whanau are going through and the financial barriers they face, especially due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. With the Whanau Hotaka programme, we will support whanau in Papakura to gain new financial wellbeing knowledge and skills, while creating a safe, supportive community learning environment and incorporating some physical movement and fitness as well. Our programme will contribute to greater community connection, enabling whanau in Papakura to live healthy lives, and unlocking opportunities (in education, employment, health & wellbeing) so they can fulfil their personal, professional, and whanau development goals.

Project: Interior renovation of our centre

Location:

Drury Playcentre

Summary:

We would like funding to renovate the interior of our centre by way of repainting.  We want to update our centre creating a modern, fresh and safe environment for our tamariki to play in. By completing these renovations we hope to achieve not only a safer environment but a more appealing environment for our  community whanau.

Expertise:

Drury Playcentre has been a staple in our community for over 50 years. We offer a safe child led learning through play as well as parental support. Our Playcentre is run by the parents of our attending tamariki. We volunteer our time to keep our centre running.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

Our centre has served the local community for over 50 years. it is a safe environment for families to come to play, spend time with their whanau and friends as well as a place to learn and achieve goals together. Our Playcentre is also a place for new families to come and learn about parenthood and their babies. Parents can find support through other families who are going through the same challenges of infancy.  Our SPACE (baby) program often is very fast to fill to capacity and regularly has a waitlist.  Having a fresh, appealing and safe environment will help attract more of our local community to come and join our Playcentre whanau.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support communities and individuals within Papakura to achieve their goals and aspirations

 

Drury Playcentre is applying to the board for funding towards repainting the interior of our centre. our current centre is in much need of updating, to keep up with the changing needs of our tamariki. Our centre has not been repainted in over 10 years and our walls are definitely starting to show their age. The current paint work is peeling and chipping which poses a heath and safety risk to our tamariki. We would like to bring our centre in line with the current practices of providing our whanau with a clean, fresh and calm environment so that the décor focus is on the tamariki's work and achievements. We would also be adding display boards (we have already purchased these) to the walls to allow us to frequently change displays to keep our tamariki engaged and to inspire their creativity. As a charity these renovations are a huge expense to us and we would struggle to afford them on our own. Having this renovation would make a huge difference to our centre by making it not only more appealing to prospective whanau but creating a modern safe environment for our tamariki.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes- Our centre is accessible for everyone including those with additional physical needs. Having the interior repainted will create not only a safer environment for our tamariki but a calming environment for our tamariki who have additional neuro-developmental needs. Our current paint scheme is very bright and busy, some tamariki can find this over stimulating and therefore an uncomfortable environment to be in.

Target ethnic groups:

All/everyone

Healthy environment approach:

Healthy options for food and drink, including water as the first choice, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes

At Playcentre we always encourage physical movement for our tamariki. We encourage child led play without the constant help of an adult. Having a renovated centre where the paint is not peeling and posing a health and safety risk will allow our tamariki the freedom to play more independently. Once our walls are painted we will be able to put up our display boards. This will allow us to not only display our tamariki's work but also display resources that promote health, wellbeing and healthy choices.

Project: Supporting Papakura rangatahi in a COVID world

Location:

145 St George St, Papatoetoe, Auckland

Summary:

We are requesting $5,000 as a contribution to the Papakura share of $7,048 of the annual budgeted costs of $185,881 for training and supervising our volunteer counsellors who staff the Youthline Helpline in support of the young people of Papakura and their whanau.
We train over 100 volunteer counsellors each year and they are essential to being able to operate the Helpline. New volunteers undertake a 5 stage comprehensive training programme in their first year that covers personal development, basic youth and community counselling training, a 2-day Marae Noho wānanga at Te Puea Marae, transition training and ongoing supervision.
Supervision is an essential process whereby volunteer counsellors receive regular (monthly) support and mentoring from more experienced supervisors.

Expertise:

Youthline has been supporting young people in need for over 50 years and we have considerable expertise in providing this support.
We have built up significant knowledge and experience over this period such that we are recognised as the premier support service for young people in need. Our 200 Helpline volunteer counsellors receive intensive training and close supervision.
Colmar Brunton research (2021) shows that over 76% of young people in New Zealand are aware of Youthline. Last year we managed over 127,000 contacts to our Helpline and worked with 16,432 individual young people.
 
In the last evaluation of the Helpline undertaken, 84.9% of respondents felt helped by the service with 90.3% being satisfied or very satisfied.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

For many of the young people we work with the first contact point with us is through the Helpline and our volunteer counsellors. Many of the young people are vulnerable – disadvantaged, disillusioned, disengaged - and their situation is exacerbated under COVID-19.
Our Helpline is staffed by 200 volunteers who processed 127,000 contacts from young people in need last year. They are only able to do this vital work because they receive comprehensive training and support. Under COVID-19 and as an essential service these roles are even more important so that we can avoid the long term effects of the traumatising nature of the pandemic.  
Last year 1,719 young people from Papakura needed our help with COVID-19 producing greater stress and distress for our rangatahi.
We have to be able to provide the best possible support for young people in need and we do this best when we have a well trained and managed team of volunteers and support staff.  
The community benefits when we are able to support these young people through their period of distress and emerge with a positive plan for the future and can help build a resilient community. This is particularly so under COVID-19.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

·     Support communities and individuals within Papakura to achieve their goals and aspirations

 

Youthline is well known as “the number one place for young people to reach out to for support” with 17% of young people contacting us for support. 76% of young people are aware of Youthline alone (Colmar Brunton 2021). We have been supporting young people and working with communities for over 50 years. We are a “with youth, for youth” organisation and the first point of contact for many young people accessing youth development and support services across Aotearoa New Zealand. We are a respected and trusted frontline service that has changed the lives of many people who have reached out in their time of need. 
The Youthline Helpline is at the heart of our mahi. Young people in need who contact us  through our Helpline often feel lonely, alone, disengaged and desperate. They often have a reduced sense of belonging to family, school or community.
We aim to ensure that the young people we work with have clear pathways from school to work. And we aim to engender a sense of belonging to their family, school and the community in which they live. In supporting these young people Youthline is very much committed to promoting healthy, safe, sustainable and active lifestyles.
COVID-19 has had a profound affect on the youth of Aotearoa. There has never been a more important time to create a sense of belonging, connection and community. 
The pandemic has increased the demand for our services to a significant degree and placed additional pressure on our already stretched resources. 
The stress and anxiety that young people felt as a result of COVID-19 since March 2020 remains for many as an underlying condition requiring great care in working with our rangatahi.
Further, just as the pandemic itself has been described as having a long tail, we know from research and experience that the pandemic will have a long mental health tail and the ongoing need for counselling services will also have long tail. 
The August 2021 lockdown was a salutary reminder that COVID is ever-present, highly contagious and can strike at any time particularly in its Delta and more recently in its Omicron form. And that our rangatahi are particularly vulnerable to the distress that the pandemic causes.
In essence, for our young people there has been no relief from the stresses and strains of COVID for 2 years. 
In research undertaken in 2021 83% of young people said mental health issues, including suicide, are the biggest problem facing youth (Colmar Brunton 2021). This follows a 2020 Youthline online survey with 975 young people and their families where more than 72% of respondents shared that COVID-19 and lockdown have impacted their mental health with young people under 25 more likely to share this than older groups.
Youthline supports these young people, acknowledges their issues and is inclusive with a strengths-based, person-centred approach. We very much aim to build engagement and resiliency for young people and and support them in transitioning to adulthood.  
Youthline services equip youth with skills and insights on how to build self-esteem and improve mental-health, how to actively problem-solve, recover from setbacks and build resilience. Counsellors link them with local support services to assist their ongoing development. Through their improved emotional and self-management skills young people are less likely to fall into helplessness, depression, addictive behaviours, dangerous relationships and unemployment. 
Our experienced youth worker teams provide individual support, mentoring, development and leadership opportunities to vulnerable youth throughout the Auckland region.
For many, connecting with Youthline provides a pathway to a range of personal development and life skills programmes offered by our team including personal development, job skills (e.g. barista training, CV writing and job applications) and learner licence training. All designed to better equip young people to be healthy and active and productive members of their communities.
Research shows that when young people are engaged in community activities, linked with whanau, and given the opportunity to participate feel that they are part of something and encouraged to reach their potential, that risk taking behaviour is reduced.  Youthline works inclusively with youth, from those young people who are most vulnerable to youth leaders who are championing change.
Our clinical support workers counsel/mentor young people identified as needing one-on-one support to encourage and inspire them.  They aim to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each young person, then identify goals and milestones and develop a plan for successful implementation and progression. By walking beside a young person and providing positive role models Youthline aims to see every young person become a positive contributor to society with a strong sense of belonging.
In terms of our services going forward we know that:
1.  There will continue to be a high demand for support coloured by the impact of COVID-19.
2.  We will need to maintain volunteer numbers for our Helpline service at as higher a level as possible to cope with the demand and increased complexity 
3.  The need for comprehensive training and triage support for our volunteers will be paramount
4.   Our youth worker teams will continue to have a large number of vulnerable young people to work with requiring significant levels of programme resources.
5.  Our volunteer and face-to-face counsellors will have a high need for supervision that in particular acknowledges the unique stresses and strains engendered by the pandemic
