Grants received

Where it all began

The operation of the centre is only possible through the support of grant awarding bodies and Auckland Council, without their support the centres operational costs would be significantly higher and with a much reduced service.

The centre was initially funded by a $2.7 million grant from the ASB Community Trust, $1.2 million grant from Auckland City Council (now Auckland Council) and $800,000 from Tamaki College plus land for the building. Funding was granted on the understanding that there would be both school and community use of the facility and that the centre would cater for the local community for the term of the partnership between school and Council. 

This initial funding was used for the construction of the centre in 2001, since then other organisations have been approached and supported us in our work.
