Lockdown In Waitākere, 2021 – A Community Snapshot

On 17 August 2021, our lives were once again turned around. Just as we were feeling like things could be returning to some sense of normality, a fresh COVID Alert Level 4 was declared, and the entire country entered a new period of lockdown.

In two months of lockdown (September – October 2021), Visionwest’s Pātaka Kai distributed as much food as for the entire previous year.

For Visionwest Waka Whakakitenga, this was an exciting and challenging time as the team worked to meet unprecedented need within communities throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.

Visionwest have now released their 2021 Lockdown Report – an analysis of, and reflection on, the period between August and October 2021.

The report centres on Waitākere, Auckland’s western region, and the experiences of both Visionwest’s service delivery teams and the whānau who approached the Trust for support.

To facilitate this report, key staff from across the organisation were interviewed about the support they provided during the lockdown, the needs they saw throughout Waitākere and the implications for future service delivery.

It’s hoped that the insights within the report might give the reader a greater understanding of how the COVID-19 pandemic affected, and continues to affect, individuals, communities, and support organisations like Visionwest.
