Te Whare Roimata provides grass-root neighbourhood responses to the needs and concerns identified by local residents from the eastern inner city neighbourhoods and urban Maori with the view to creating a Treaty-based, more self-reliant community better able to meet its needs.   A range of activities and projects have evolved located in and around the neighbourhood.  These include:

  • Cultural advice and support for Maori by an experienced Maori Community Worker
  • Support and outreach to local people with a focus on older people
  • A comprehensive arts programme involving exhibitions, festivals, concerts, workshops and art classes located at the Linwood Community Arts Centre
  • Pre-employment opportunities for people who struggle to get employment
  • An extensive community garden and allotment programme at 180 Smith Street
  • A small household removal service, and section clearing service
  • A weekly two course lunch held on Thursdays at 468 Worcester Street
  • A boutique Op Shop at 468 Worcester Street
  • Transitional projects located at the Linwood Village, Stanmore Road
  • A book and postal service based at Stanmore Book and Post, 108B Stanmore Road.

Hours: Monday to Friday - varies depending on the location of the activity.
