Greetings! Thanks for taking the time to learn about us. Housing in Malvern isn’t the massive community stress point that it is in Auckland or even in Christchurch, but for those challenged by affordable housing in Malvern— well for them, perhaps for you—housing is a massive stress point at the individual or family level. We exist to be one part of an answer for your challenges. That maybe in advocacy, encouraging our Selwyn Council to live up to their stated vision around housing: to encourage developers to set aside small sections and opportunities for smaller and more affordable housing.

We have a survey that we’d love you to fill out. You can hand it to Philip or Susan Baldwin in Darfield, post it to Box 49 Hororata or drop into the Darfield library (Malvern Community Hub), or leave with Margaret Cross at Hororata Garage for Dave and Virginia Askin.
If you have some time, our About Us page gives more information about the trust. You may also like to jump over to our library where you can read our trust deed and other pertinent documents relating to the Trust.
