Owning your own house is a rite of passage, an achievement that provides a sense of accomplishment and the realisation that you have reached the next stage in life. More than a materialistic goal, it allows you to create a home, to lay down roots and to feel secure.
However, taking that first step on to the property ladder has become increasingly difficult. This is where the Wayne Francis Charitable Trust aims to provide support, hope and opportunity.
Founded in memory of Wayne James Francis, the trust abides by Wayne’s vision of strengthening social responsibility within communities and backing those who strive to better themselves. With projects focused on youth development and helping young people grow to their full potential, moving into housing opportunities seemed the natural next step for the Trust.
Working in partnership with the New Zealand Housing Foundation, the Wayne Francis Charitable Trust will provide housing opportunities for first home buyers at Halswell Commons and the chance of a home now to those that saw it as a far off feat.
So if you’ve dreamed of owning a home and are ready to make it a reality, the Wayne Francis Charitable Trust may be just the partner you are looking for.
You can find further information on the criteria and conditions of the housing opportunities, visit the New Zealand Housing Foundation website.
