Community funding and support

Housing for older people

Auckland Council owns 1412 units across Auckland. The purpose of these units is to provide housing to older people who have a housing need.


Cost

The cost to rent a unit is 30 per cent of the tenant's gross income (pre-tax income).

This is in line with the housing affordability threshold set in the Auckland Plan.

Bonds are generally four week's rent.


Work and Income accommodation supplement

Work and Income offers an accommodation supplement. This is a weekly payment which helps people with their rent, board or the cost of owning a home.

Visit the Work and Income website to see if you are eligible.


Types of unit

Villages are generally grouped in blocks of three or four units. Villages range in size from four to 68 units.

We have three types of units:

  • Studio units for one tenant:
    These self-contained units have a kitchen, bathroom and combined bedroom and living area
  • One bedroom units for one tenant:
    These self-contained units have a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and living area.
  • One bedroom units for couples:
    These are larger in area than the one bedroom units for one tenant.

The majority of the units are not furnished. Tenants need to provide their own curtains.
