Nau mai, haere mai koutou katoa!
Welcome everyone!

The Woolston Development Project (WDP) began in 1988 as a not-for-profit community organisation providing safe recreational, social, and educational opportunities for children, women and families.

Today we seek to expand our role in our community by adding community development projects to the services and programmes we already provide, empowering our local community – all genders, ethnicities, faiths, socio-economic statuses, ages and stages – to reach its potential.

Important notice: COVID-19 Traffic Light system
Anyone (excluding OSCAR programme children) entering our building must provide a vaccination certificate or a valid medical exemption.

Unvaccinated OSCAR programme parents/caregivers must not enter the building but come to the front door and make staff aware that they’re there to collect their child(ren) and then go back down the steps and wait for their child(ren) to be released.

We hope that once this pandemic is over we can return to normal. Kia kaha everyone.
