  Wellington Housing

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.

More about us

Dwell Housing Trust provides affordable, quality housing for people in need or on a low income, and whose housing needs are not being met by other housing providers in the Wellington region. We are more than a landlord - we ensure our tenants have access to the support they need to live well, do well and be well.

We provide a range of housing services including social housing, supported housing for people experiencing mental illness, shared living for single people, and general needs affordable rental (below market) housing.

Dwell became operational in 2013 following the merger of Wellington Housing Trust and Mahora House Incorporated, who between them had more than 50 years experience in community housing. We carry on their great work in solving the housing crisis in the Wellington region.

    This is a donation of the proceeds from a bake sale we held in Khandallah to raise awareness and money for the trust. This was as a result of a project on Social issues at WGC. We chose the trust as we like the proactive nature of the work it does.

      Wow we are blown away by this lovely donation. Thank you so much. It really means alot to us that you went to so much effort and gave your time to raise this money. We love baking too so its very appropriate! :-) We are thinking we'll use the money to put towards our garden area at new homes we are building and add some features we didn't have funds for. Thank you.
