Housing Call to Action

August 21, 2014 at 10:08 AM

The Housing Call to Action requests your support for our two major projects for this year.

A Campaign to Raise Awareness of Homelessness and the lack of Housing in West Auckland from September 1st – 8th 2014 

Did you know that there are over 15,000 people who are homeless in Auckland? And did you know that the Henderson Massey Local Board area has the highest number of A priority applicants on the waiting list for HNZ housing in Auckland, second only to Christchurch? 

It’s easy to be involved in this awareness raising campaign:

Step One:
Commit to doing one or more actions/projects that raise housing awareness in your local community or place of work., e.g. posters and banners. Actions should be respectful, non-political, not damage property or the environment and be easily removed or cleaned off.  We also have pre-made signs available for you to display on your fence or section . Please contact 

Step Two:
Email and let us know what you will be doing to raise awareness in your local community or place of work

Step Three:
Have your action/project on display from September 1st – 7th 2014

Step Four:
Take a photo of your awareness raising action/project and email to or post the photo to the Housing Call to Action – West Auckland Facebook Page at with #therealhousingcrisis included in your comment

Step Five:
Complete the evaluation form which will be emailed to you at the completion of the awareness raising campaign. 


Our second event is The Political Panel Discussion on Housing which takes place on Wednesday September 3rd, 6pm – 8pm, MPHS Hub West Hall, 27 Corban Ave, Henderson.   We are requesting that every organization attend this event so that the Politicians understand our commitment to highlighting and addressing the Housing Issues in West Auckland.  Please also bring along your friends and colleagues and pass the invitation flyer through your networks.  The Political Panel discussion will include:

•    Housing New Zealand

•    Rental Affordability

•    Home Ownership

•    Homelessness

•    Housing Warrant of Fitness Standards


Please find attached the Housing Awareness Raising registration form, and the Political Panel Discussion flyer.
