About Wesley Rātā Village

Re-weaving community: across the generations, everyone contributing to a good life.

Wesley Rātā Village is a community resource that provides good homes for residents and is a place for Naenae’s community to come and build wellbeing and resilience.

You can find Wesley Rātā Village at 249 Rātā Street in Naenae, on the site of the former WesleyHaven Resthome and Hospital. We are working closely with the community to determine how best to use the site and the buildings on it.

Regular activities at the Village

The village is host to a number of regular activities. These include:

  • a regular 10-week Ageing Well programme for lonely and isolated seniors living in the Hutt Valley
  • three-week training courses to prepare young unemployed people for jobs in the construction industry run by Kiwi Can Do
  • the Rātā Playgroup and the Naenae Forest Playgroup
  • a partnership with Brothers & Sisters, a collective of young artists, who are living on the site and play a hosting role to foster more community connection
  • community lunches, afternoon teas and activity groups throughout the month
  • a partnership with Naenae Nature Trust to make our beautiful native bush accessible to the Naenae community.
