It has been an unpredictable time for everyone; and we at WCT are doing our best to adapt and respond to community need. A quick update about what level 1 means for WCT:

Our Funding

Our funding will continue to have a strong equity focus, and priority will be given to organisations supporting whānau and community wellbeing, particularly for those most impacted by direct and indirect consequences of COVID-19. Our criteria remain the same and we will be accepting applications that meet at least one of these criteria.

If you have questions about how your project/work may meet the criteria, or if you would like to discuss the changing needs in your community please contact us.


Now that we are able to work face to face as normal, we are looking forward to meeting with many of you in the coming weeks & months. Please be patient with us as we schedule these meetings in – it might take a little longer than usual.

We still encourage you to get in touch via email if possible. Email us at
