Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Ensuring inclusivity for individuals with disabilities is at the heart of our project. We are committed to providing an environment where everyone, regardless of their abilities, can actively engage and reap the benefits. To achieve this, we implement comprehensive accessibility measures:
 
Our project location is wheelchair accessible, featuring ramps, and wide pathways. We train our team to cater to diverse needs and create a welcoming atmosphere. Regular feedback from participants with disabilities guides our improvements.
 
Personalized support is offered, from aiding those with visual impairments to providing seating accommodations. We collaborate with local disability organizations to align with best practices.
 
Through these efforts, we strive to offer full accessibility. Our objective is an inclusive space where all individuals can participate and contribute, nurturing a diverse and cohesive community.

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, Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Absolutely, integrating sustainable practices into projects and leading by example is a powerful way for the Bhartiya Samaj Charitable Trust to promote a healthy environment approach within the community. By showcasing these practices firsthand, the Trust can effectively communicate the significance of environmental consciousness. This approach serves as an educational tool, inspiring individuals to adopt eco-friendly behaviors in their daily routines. When community members witness tangible efforts towards sustainability, they are more likely to recognize their role in preserving the environment and making conscious choices. This approach creates a ripple effect, encouraging a collective shift towards a greener and more sustainable future. Through this proactive stance, the Trust not only imparts valuable knowledge but also empowers the community to be active participants in building a healthier planet.

Summary:

Through feedback and research young people tell us they want better support to develop independence, resilience, confidence, and critical thinking abilities to navigate the transition for life outside of school.
Enabling the informed, accurate, and supported decisions by 1026 year 13 secondary school students across the Howick Local Board area Blue Light wishes to produce, print and distribute its Street Smart Handbook. Street Smart contains material that is not
contained in the NZ Curriculum and ensures that students along with accurate and relevant information, have the links and contact details to key support agencies in the community. Distributed through Blue Light’s 78 strong branch network Street Smart provides opportunities for positive connections between Blue Light, Police, and students.

Expertise:

Blue Light has been working in the community delivering successful programmes, activities, events, and services to disadvantaged and excluded young people for 40 years. Street Smart has been successfully delivered for over 11 years throughout New Zealand to over 25,000 Year 13 secondary school students each year throughout New Zealand.

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

1026 Year 13 students who receive the Street Smart Handbook in schools in the Howick Local Board area will have:
• A resource which has been developed through listening to what young people tell us they want to support them in this key transitionary time of leaving school.
• Access to key accurate life skills information not contained in the NZ Curriculum, and not misinformation obtained through social media and peers.
• A printed resource, which they, and other members of their family can readily access, as opposed to information only accessible on the internet which is not available to all.
• Contacts and referral details for key Government agencies and community services to support them both now in this time and into the uncertain future in both phone, text, and email.
• Tertiary training and career planning information
• An opportunity to make positive connections with their local Police.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Howick

·     People are safe with access to services to support their wellbeing

Blue Light’s Street Smart Handbook has listened to young people’s needs and supports 1026 Year 13 secondary school students in the Howick Local Board area to make informed and accurate decisions to support their positive well-being and self-development 
at a key transition time – that of leaving school. Street Smart:
• Covers a huge range of accurate information on issues affecting young people from mental health, drugs, through to vaping and alcohol.
• Focuses on important life skills such as tenancy agreements, driver licensing, budgeting and credit.
• Provides upskilling opportunities, volunteering ideas, tertiary training, career services and support
• Contains information not within the NZ Curriculum
• Has contact details for key government and service agencies in their community including phone numbers, text, and email addresses.
The benefits of the Street Smart Handbook for young people are:
• It’s accessible for all young people through its hard copy format delivered to schools as opposed to online which is not.
• Targeted at Year 12/13 students in secondary schools throughout NZ to affected by inequalities acerbated by the rising cost of living.
• Delivered into schools through Blue Light’s 78 strong branch network creating opportunities for positive police connections
• Delivers up to date accurate information on issues and subjects as opposed to misinformation sourced from social media or from peers.

Demographics

Māori outcomes:

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

Maori are a key target audience for the Street Smart Handbook due to:
o Cost of living crisis disproportionately affecting Maori.
o Rangatahi Maori lack of access to devices, data or internet.
o Rangatahi Māori, are more likely to not be in employment or training post-secondary education
 o Rangatahi Maori face pressure to leave school, take up employment or provide care for whanau. 
Blue Light's Street Smart provides: 
- a printed resource, removing the technology barriers
 - trusted information on a range of issues affecting both Rangatahi Maori and whanau.
 - a support to the engagement of Rangatahi Maori in schooling
 - information/contact details about groups working with Maori in their community to support them.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - Blue Light through providing the Street Smart Handbook online, as well as in a printed format, enables youth experiencing disability choice and flexibility in how they prefer to access the information provided. Blue Light's online version will be formatted so that text to
speech applications can be utilised by and for youth who prefer to have the material spoken to them

Healthy environment approach:

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

Street Smart's provides information to young people on how to make informed choices to enhance their positive well-being and self-development and contains sections on Healthy bodies, including information on the dangers of smoking and vaping and how to quit. This section also contains information on healthy eating and eating disorders. It has links and contacts to agencies who can help support youth, their families and community members if they experience mental illness and if they need support or questions around healthy and sustainable lifestyle choices.

 

 

Does your project support any genders, ages or ethnicities specifically?

Blue Light is a youth focussed organisation and Street Smart has been designed to support young people aged between 16-19 as they transition from secondary school into employment, leaving home, entering into training or tertiary education.
While no specific gender diverse groups have been targeted, nor are they excluded. Over 100,000 young people participate in Blue Light's programmes and activities annually making diversity and inclusion practices a priority. Our work-place policy and procedures
reflect our commitment to diversity and inclusion

 

Financial information

Amount requested:

$3591.00

Requesting grant for:

Printing costs for Street Smart Handbooks to be distributed to 1026 Year 13 students in Howick Local Board secondary schools only

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

Street Smart is funded on a school by school basis through different community funding groups so our project will so go ahead elsewhere but if funding reduced or no funding received from the Howick Local Board then fewer or no Street Smart copies will be printed for students in the Howick area.

Project: Cockle Bay Beach Reserve Planting and Restoration Project Phase II

Location:

Phase II of the project targets the Windross Track at the reserve end of Shelly Beach Parade, Cockle Bay Beach.

Summary:

The Cockle Bay Beach Reserve Planting and Restoration project began in 2020 by a group of earnest  local  volunteers and without funding . In 2022 CBRRA  were successful in obtaining a Howick Local Board Grant enabling us to really push the project forward with the funding providing the ability to purchase trees, ground covers and shrubs as well as landscaping and drainage materials. This has made a huge, noticeable difference to the walkways , resulting in increased numbers of the community using and enjoying this community asset.
There is however, still a monumental amount of work to be done to restore the complete  length of the Windross track which we hope to achieve in stages.

Expertise:

During Stage I of restoration we fulfilled  the objectives of our initial grant  by reducing erosion and stormwater flow next to the paths. The flow of storm water and sediment has been noticeably slowed by our plantings. We continue to remove pest plants and carry out regular working bees to plant and maintain the areas of this project. Prior to, and throughout the first stage of the restoration, some volunteers attended and took part in pest plant and restoration planning & Geo mapping Council workshops gaining useful knowledge that has been applied to the pest plant removal, plant selection and planting, We constantly monitor the project and are proactive in attending to any concerns, or potential issues that are observed.

Promotion:

We publicly acknowledge the local board's contribution at every opportunity including signage on the restoration site, our newsletters, on our social media pages, Facebook and website and in the local newspaper Howick & Pakuranga Times. We also acknowledge the Howick Local Board's contribution in conversation with people using the walkways whilst undertaking our regular working bees on the project. And of course any photo opportunities when Local Board members visit the project.

 

Environmental benefits:  There is evidence of increased terrigenous material (sediment) on the Cockle Bay seabed. Removal of pest plants and replanting the area with appropriate and suitable plantings will help mitigate run off and siltation to the beach. At the same time, the replanting will provide a refuge for birdlife, and stream/water management will encourage eels and Kokopu, creating healthy bio-diversity.

 

Community benefits

Identified community outcomes:

 

The walkways are used by many local residents as well as visitors, including walking groups, from other areas. The project enhances and protects the natural beauty and special characteristics of the Cockle Bay Reserve area. Improvement made by pest plant clearance, planting native trees and ground covers  to increase soil stability, minimise siltation and protection of the stream provides an on going benefit to the community and encourages the community to recognise and protect the Significant Ecological area these pathways are part of. There is evidence of increased terrigenous  material (sediment) present on the Cockle Bay seabed. The project work will  help mitigate siltation runoff to the stream and onwards to the beach further reducing damage.

Alignment with local board priorities:

 

 

 Howick

·     Protect and enhance our unique coastline

Our Restoration project supports multiple priorities, land, awa, and ocean by planting and stabilising the land which mitigates damage from run off and weather events. At the same time, increased bio diversity from our initial plantings  is already evident in the stream and will get better over time. We learnt within the period of our initial grant, that this area falls within the Significant Ecological Area (SEA). It is important to improve this SEA area as well as creating awareness of it's existence to the local community.

Accessible to people with disabilities

Yes - The Pah and Windross walkways are clear of obstruction allowing all users including people with disabilities. We often see people with mobility scooters using the paths and although the Pah pathway is quite steep many parents with baby strollers regularly use all walkways leading to and from the Cockle Bay beach reserve.

Healthy environment approach:

Encouraging active lifestyles including movement or fitness programmes, Encourage the reduction of carbon emissions or increase community resilience to the impacts of climate change*

Encouraging the local community to get out into the fresh air, do some weeding, do some planting, meet like minded positive people and make a practical difference to climate change.  We encourage collaboration between volunteers, various organisations and council departments, including our Local Board with a view to protecting our beautiful local asset which also meets the objectives of Auckland's Unitary Plan.

Requesting grant for:

Phase II of the Windross track restoration which encompasses the area on both sides of the stream from the first bridge to the second bridge on the walkway. The approximate area of this part of the restoration project is 1300 square meters

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

If only part funding was available, we consider the landscaping portion would be of utmost importance as managing the stream is a priority.  However, hopefully the planting amount would not be reduced significantly as once pest plants are removed, they need to be replaced with appropriate planting . This will reduce on going costs.
