Community Facilities Mapping
We have been subcontracted by Delta Networks to support the review of community facilities they had been commissioned to carry out for the Porirua Development Project (Kainga Ora) and Porirua City Council. The Te Hiko team at Wesley Community Action were asked to support the research work. Our mahi was to tap into our networks and reputation to collect insights into the gaps, needs and opportunities people in this community see when it comes to community facilities.
We held a range of hui with local people who live and/or work in Porirua East and identified themes in their views of the community facilities to report back to Kainga Ora and Porirua City Council.
Because we have long, and trusted relationships in Porirua East,
we were able to have kōrero with a range of key people from the community and gain valuable insights from them that would have been tricky for Council or an outsider to the community to gain.
