Feedback Seminar: Life When Renting on Waiheke

posted in: General News

All Welcome to a seminar on Wednesday 24th October, at the St John’s Hall, 5 Belgium Street, Ostend from 5.30 – 7.30pm.

During the session the speakers will give an overview of key points from a National Science Challenge Ageing Well project Life When Renting which involved case studies from Waiheke Island. They will present the analysis of the stories people revealed and their experiences of uncertainty and hardship that challenge the glossy-brochure images of Waiheke island life. In addition, the speakers will provided a preview and discuss a follow up study of coping with damp housing on Waiheke. A prototype toolkit with information about tenant rights, services and supports for older renters will be presented. There will be time for discussion and refreshments.
