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.
