It has been a very special month at DCM. Many of you have been following the journey our taumai have embarked on, enroling to vote, discussing the issues and practicing voting. The polling booth at DCM during election week capped months of activity designed to inform and motivate taumai to have their say. More than 100 taumai showed they counted when they voted at DCM, and many others voted in their own communities. And yes, for many of them, it was the very first time they had voted. We know you want to hear much more about how this has gone, more than we can share in this brief update. And so we invited DCM kaitautoko (supporter), Lee-Anne Duncan to spend some time with us during election week and to help us tell the story. Lee-Anne spoke with several taumai, and you will enjoy reading their reflections. Click here to read this story! And here we also introduce you to some more taumai who voted at DCM. Pete was the very first person to vote in the General Election at DCM’s polling booth. Pete has been supported by DCM for many years; he is now housed and our wonderful Sustaining Tenancies team work very closely with him. Pete had never voted before. Rochelle has begun doing some paid work at DCM this year, and this has made her think about the example she is setting to other taumai. “This was the first time I have voted, even though I’ve always encouraged my children to vote. I’ve been thinking about our taumai, and seen how easy voting has been for them. I wanted to take part, as they have been, to help set an example as a peer support worker. My kids said ‘Good on you mum’! It felt really, really good to vote, and have my voice heard.” Tony grew up in Iraq, and has faced many challenges in his life. English is also not his first language. Aileen from DCM’s Aro Mai Housing First team is Tony’s keyworker, supporting him to settle in to a home and to work through other issues so that he can thrive in all aspects of his life. Aileen was able to go in with Tony to support him to vote. Tony was very proud, keen to have his photo taken and happy for us to share his photo with you. Many of you know and love Te Amo and so you will understand how thrilled we were that he was able to vote here at DCM. Te Amo has voted before, but has sometimes found the experience difficult and frustrating. At DCM's polling booth, he was in a place he knows well and had the support of people he knows well, to ensure that his voice was heard. <!-- --> Celebrating with Seasonal Kai Voting week at DCM ended with a special celebration, and an acknowledgement of the courage of taumai who had voted for the first time ever, or for the first time in a long time. This day was chosen for kōanga seasonal kai, when the community comes together to share food and mark the change of season. This time the kai was provided by the Press Hall food court vendors. It was a very fitting way to lift up all of those who had voted, and all those who had supported them to do so. <!-- --> Foodbank appeal – can you help? DCM Christmas Foodbank Appeal Saturday 21 November 2020 Here at DCM, we are very reliant on the two large annual Foodbank Appeals to keep our shelves stocked. However this year, the winter appeal was unable to proceed, as it coincided with the COVID lock-down. This year’s Christmas Foodbank Appeal will therefore be even more important than ever. We need a large team of volunteers to play a variety of roles on Saturday 21 November – can you help in this way? Please get in touch by emailing matthew@dcm.org.nz We also encourage you to head down to New World at Chaffers, New World Metro on Willis Street, or New World Newtown on this day – and to encourage your friends and family to do the same. You can pick up a copy of our shopping list from one of the volunteers and select some items to purchase, for us to share with our taumai over the busy Christmas and summer period. <!-- --> Please help us get the message out there! Forward this email on to everyone you can think of who may be interested in how to respond to homelessness, and just generally people who are passionate about Wellington. <!-- --> Support DCM! Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi With your basket and my basket, the people will thrive <!-- --> Copyright © 2020 DCM. All rights reserved.

    • Collaboration, Coordination and Inspiration
      • 28 Sep 2020
      • St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington
      • <figure class=" sqs-block-image-figure intrinsic " > The past six months have provided opportunities for the Holy Trinity Eastern Suburbs Conference in Wellington, to provide new and existing clients with the assistance they need, when they need it.  It’s also provided real insight into, firstly, the value of collaboration and coordination between Parish, Conference members and Vinnie’s service staff in Newtown; and secondly, how a targeted and specific approach helps inspire members and clients alike. With the on-set of Level 4 lockdown in March 2020, our Conference used our existing client lists, Parish Office referrals of elderly and isolated parishioners, the Vinnies social worker referrals and Conference member knowledge to identify 180 clients to check-in on under lockdown conditions.            We then used 14 members (active members, associates and prospective members) to undertake check-in phone calls and find out whether there was any specific lockdown needs such as food supply, clothing or child/baby needs, bedding, encouragement through the stress of it all, advocacy, or on-going check-up calls. Overall, there was overwhelmingly positive feedback on the outreach from Vinnies which was also seen as representative of being part of a caring Parish.  Many practical needs were identified, such as nine households requiring weekly food parcels which, once referred by us, were delivered by the Vinnies vans from nearby Newtown. These services continued into Alert Levels 3 and 2, sometimes requiring our own Conference members to do deliveries.  As parishioners heard of the initiative through the grapevine and our notices in the online weekly parish newsletters, more food/household items and money were donated directly to help these clients.  Families with children who needed school items and clothing were also identified and, as we progressed to Alert Level 1, it was possible for one of our members to take these families shopping to secure necessary supplies. We have all long known that often the most effective services are those that require coordination to fulfil a range of needs.  These needs also require more than one person or group involved in order to achieve the best outcomes.  Conversely, it is often a lack of coordination that provides the most frustration for those in most need who have multiple needs.  COVID-19 gave us an opportunity to showcase the value of Parish Office staff, priests, parishioners, our Conference members and Vinnies Welfare Centre staff working together – it was inspiring for all involved.

    • 100 UP FOR ASHA STROM
      • 7 Sep 2020
      • Wellington United AFC
      • Wellington United's latest centurion, Asha Strom, is something of an unsung hero. Playing in a defensive midfield role she doesn't get in the spotlight like those that score the goals, she just gets on with her job, a job she does so well and has set a very high standard in she really has to have an exceptional game to get noticed. 2018 Dutch import Suzanne Giesen, commented on her time at the club "it was fantastic playing with Asha, as she did all the hard work which allowed me to push forward and attack more" Playing in the role she does, Asha doesn't get many chances to score goals, and while she has scored just four in her 100 games they have all been memorable shots from about 25-30 meters. Goals that her teammates have dubbed "Asha specials"
