Dwell provides affordable housing for people on low incomes whose housing needs are not being met by other housing providers.
We believe that stable, affordable, healthy and appropriate housing is fundamental to people’s wellbeing. We know that appropriate housing has long-lasting benefits for the people living within those households and the wider community. Sadly at a time when more NZers are renting their homes, social housing is on the decline. We are working hard to fill some of the gaps.
Dwell knows that the difference affordable and appropriate housing makes to people’s lives is huge and significant. We have numerous examples of families who have been able to change their lives through living in stable, affordable and appropriate housing.
