In 2020, Home in Place made a commitment to acknowledge the work of Māori Wardens by providing housing to local Māori Wardens on the social housing register in the areas in which we operate. Māori Wardens have been working in local communities, looking after whanau for over 150 years. They are not police, but they have legal responsibilities under the Māori Community Development Act 1962.
We currently have wardens in all our properties from Palmerston North, Whanganui as well as West and South Auckland. There are approximately 900 Māori Wardens who volunteer their time to supporting their local communities.
The tenants in Central Avenue in South Auckland worked with the Otahuhu Māori Wardens and our local Māori Warden tenant Thomas, to make over 300 mask packs as well as prepare food parcels for distribution throughout South Auckland during the recent Auckland COVID-19 lockdown.
