We are an accredited community housing provider (CHP) and we are committed to adding to the stock of quality rental accommodation with the support of Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.  

Some of our homes are rented to people on the housing register and some are available on the open market for people with a range of housing needs. As a non-profit social housing provider we aim to foster connected and safe communities and keep rents as low as possible.  

A present we have:

  • 25  houses at Wesley Rātā Village in Naenae for people on the social housing register 
  • 30 rental villas in Wesley Rātā Village  for  older people 
  • 7 rental units in Newtown.
