The Waitakere WINZ Branch is the closest branch to Western Park Village.

We have a range of accommodation options to suit all budgets.  Plus: power and water are included, so you never have to worry about any more bills!

Many of our new tenants have fallen on tough times and need a hand to get back on their feet again.  We’ve recently opened a new facility call ‘The Hub’.  Located in the Village, The Hub is offers residents free telephone, computer and Internet access, coordinated support services, other activities and, importantly, a place to meet.

The Village is a very social environment; there’s always someone to talk to, an often people in similar situations.  Below is what a few of our tenants said – read more about them here
