Through Project HomeWise, we engage with ethnic minority community groups in the Whau, Henderson-Massey and Waitākere Ranges Local Board areas to share tips on how to heat homes efficiency and keep them warm and dry.

HomeWise Workshops are fun, interactive and informative. The average workshop length is approximately an hour and a half.

Contact our team if you are interested in hosting a HomeWise workshop in your community.


The Healthy Rentals programme provides tenants and landlords with advice and assistance to help make their homes warmer and drier. This can include subsidies on insulation for landlords and the free installation of energy efficient devices for tenants.

Tenants, you're likely to be eligible if you have a community services card, rent a home that has problems with mould and live within one of the areas we cover.

Our friendly sustainability advisors deliver the Healthy Rentals programme in the Whau and Puketāpapa Local Board areas. The Whau Local Board area comprises the suburbs of New Lynn, Green Bay, Kelston, Rosebank, Avondale, New Windsor and Blockhouse Bay. The Puketāpapa Local Board includes the suburbs of Three Kings, Hillsborough, Waikowhai, Lynfield and Wesley. Find your local board area
