We’re taking a number of steps to help prevent the spread of Covid-19. These include cancelling all the regular community gatherings we host at Wesley Rātā Village, Wesley House in Cannons Creek, Wesley Waitangirua and in Strathmore. (See below for a list of the affected community gatherings).
We’re also introducing strict protocols for internal meetings, and for people visiting our offices – both staff and non-staff.
We’ll be making further decisions about events hosted on our sites by other organisations, and we’re talking with Region Public Health about protocols for the Wellington redgion Fruit and Vegetable Co-op.
We realise these are drastic steps for a critical situation. We have to take bold action to keep vulnerable people in our communities safe
We are holding strong to our kaupapa – it is as important as ever. Our mahi now is to work in new ways with whānau and clients to support them to stay connected even while separate.
We are exploring how we can support communities without our usual tool of bringing people together around kai to design new ideas – we need to dig deep to use all of the tools in our kete.
The affected community gatherings include:
- Ageing Well
- Community Connect lunches at Wesley Rātā Village
- Good Cents
- Real Good Kai
- Men’s Group
- Mama Celia’s Table
- Real Talk
- Bakers Club at Waitangirua
- Te Rito Playgroup in Strathmore
- Mums and Cubs
