YW C A OF GREATER WELLINGTON A N N U A L R EPOR T 2 0 10 104th ED ITION


The YWCA in the Wellington region is over 100 years old. We run relevant programmes in the region to help develop and educate women, with support from members, volunteers, community trusts and foundations.

Our vision is to see young women making positive life choices. We aim to do this by: • Providing training and mentoring so young women acquire the skill and confidence to reach their potential; • Providing role models by celebrating success; • Providing opportunities for relationship building, networking, and connections between all women of all ages; • Raising community awareness of issues that our young women face and advocating on their behalf; • Collaborating with other service providers towards common goals • Sustaining our organisation and our activities through fundraising, promoting the YWCA and building our membership. We are a membership based organisation, and moved to become a totally volunteer led and run organisation in November 2010.

PAT R ON’ S M ES S AGE During 2010 the focus of the YWCA of Greater Wellington has been to prepare for change and to take risks. With significant historical changes to the organisation, such as the name change, staff changes and the strong decisions made by the board, YWCA women are preparing to lead within the ideal of a sustainable future. It has addressed issues that confront young women: financial stress, alcohol abuse, body image and dating violence- all tough topics which badly need attention in our community today. One of the year’s highlights was to be involved in the dating violence information session with the Sophie Elliott Foundation, which shared with young women and their mothers the importance of understanding the warning signs of potentially dangerous relationships. Held at the New Zealand Portrait Gallery in November 2010, the session showcased the significant need to share and learn from stories such as Lesley Elliott’s account of how her family and friends failed to heed the danger signs that led to her daughter’s death. When we look at the history of the YWCA, we see that over time needs change, and the YWCA has naturally adapted to different demands. Just as the turning points and decisions made by young women as they move through various stages in their lives require different skills, so the YWCA grows and makes invested decisions for its future and sustainability. May the YWCA vision of supporting the challenges for young women in our region, match their energy, passion and commitment well into and beyond 2011. Avenal McKinnon Patron

It has been a privilege to be the President of our YWCA in 2010. Past president Lynell Tuffery supported all of us through a significant change process, leaving a great team for me to work with as the changed organisation set about working through our strategic plan. 2010 highlights include the celebration of the Maori Womens’ Transfer Fund and seeing the YWCA administer over $55,000 to Maori women’s projects in the region over the last 20 years. In October, the YWCA, with author Barbara Francis, launched the book Our Secretary in China at Parliament, a project three years in the making. With the change of name and constitution at our 2009 Annual General Meeting, we have our plans to move our services into the Porirua and Hutt Valley regions. A slow but calculated process will give the YWCA presence again in the regions close to Wellington City.

PRESID EN T’S MESSA GE

The board has made incredibly hard decisions, as funding has been a barrier for us yet again in these financial times. As we continue as a volunteer based organisation in 2011, we look for ways to improve efficiencies and resources to help young women in the region make positive life choices.

“As members of the YWCA we need to look at our own organisation. We cannot stand still – we are part of

This is one of many social profit organisations I am involved with that would not survive without the dedication of our members and volunteers. It is those that came before us, like Life Member Faith Gibbons, who passed on in 2010, that have set us up with connections that now help from afar with support and donations. I also acknowledge the great work

2010 E V E NTS 117 years on and Suffrage we celebrate Back in 1893, women were fighting for their voices to be heard. The tireless Kate Sheppard fought for women’s right to vote. She gave Aotearoa the international reputation for being a feisty nation, ideal for having a fair go. She was a great woman, described by the Christchurch Press as ‘a name that will remain an inspiration to the daughters of Aotearoa while history endures’. Our association annually honours those New Zealand women from the past, who exercised their right to sign the 32,000 signature strong petition. Kate Sheppard and her crew of 32,000 women are the women that made it for us. 2010 saw a fundraising breakfast at the Ibis Hotel, with the candidate for the Mayor of Wellington City, Celia Wade-Brown (now Mayor), and two speakers from our successful Discover™ students of Wellington East Girls’ College, Anna Popovich and Kristy-Lee Tanuvasa-Lui (pictured above). Thanks to Leonie Snook of Harcourts, the #1 property agent in New Zealand for the raffle prize. Fundraising at the flicks - Made in Dagenham 90 women, friends and family joined us for our first movie fundraiser in many years at the Penthouse Cinema in Brooklyn. Made in Dagenham is based in the year 1968, the year of many revolutions and demonstrations – such as that by the Ford motor companies female sewing machinists. Selected by our Board Executive, this movie uplifted and gave those in the audience a feeling of wonder for women’s rights to have equal pay.

Chandima Hayward-Fogg received a YWCA Outward Bound scholarship supported by the association.

* Secured deposits comprise secured debenture investments in St Laurence Limited, Strategic Finance Limited and Dominion Finance Limited. All the investments are frozen as all the holding companies are in receivership. The investments have been assessed as being impaired and consequently written down to reflect the expected recoverable value of the asset. Recoverability has been assessed with reference and guidance offered by the Receivers of each company, where the

15


advised recoverability range spans between 10-35%. **The comparative period has been restated to adjust for a material error. The adjustment was raised to reflect the fair value of the investment as at 31 December 2009 accordingly to market rates. The restatement has resulted in an unrealised loss on investment of $12,530 being recognised in the statement of financial position. the impact of the write down has resulted in a reduction in the carrying value in shares in a listed company from $53,530 to a restated value of $41,000.
