OWN IT WORKSHOPS

Get ready for home ownership with the OWN IT Workshops

The free OWN IT Workshops are for anyone in Tāmaki who would like to learn the skills to get ready to buy a house. There are eight sessions run by our friendly team. There’s no judgement - just lots of support, expert help and practical advice.

You will:

  • Get yourself ready to apply for a mortgage
  • Get the skills to build a financial plan for your whānau (pay off debt and save for a deposit)
  • Find out how to apply for financial help available to buy your home, such as the First Home Loan and the First Home Grant
  • Learn all about how to buy an OWN IT house, if you’re eligible for one

The OWN IT Workshops are run regularly in person and over Zoom. Send us your details using the form below, and we’ll let you know when the next one is.

“IT WAS REALLY COOL TO BE THERE AND SHARE EVERYONE’S STORY”

When Toko and Rose first signed up to the OWN IT Workshops to get the skills to buy their own home, they were pretty nervous. “It was quite daunting at first, because it’s something personal,” says Toko.

But after meeting the OWN IT team and the other Tāmaki locals doing the workshops, they soon felt right at home. “For me it was a benefit to have the same group coming through and supporting each other right through the whole programme.”

Meet some of the other OWN IT Workshop graduates

Since 2016, more than 200 Tāmaki whānau have completed the OWN IT Workshops, and many now own their own home in Tāmaki. Learn about some of their stories here.
