Work starts for Wellington City Mission's new community hub

From Checkpoint, 5:52 pm on 14 October 2021

Ground was broken today, in a sense, at the site of what will be Wellington City Mission's new community hub.

In the first of its kind for the country - the centre will host supportive housing units, medical support and social services, alongside a supermarket and public cafe.

The concept is designed to make those who need a bit of extra help, feel connected to the community, and uphold their dignity.

Our reporter Emma Hatton and visual journalist Angus Dreaver were there.
