Since Nurturing the Future opened their Community Hub in Greymouth in February 2010, hundreds of people are welcomed through the doors each week.
The Hub brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to learn through educational workshops, gain support through health and advocacy services, meet friends and have fun.
Trish Hunt, who established Nurturing the Future Trust in 2009, says “We’re unique because we offer support and advice anytime. We respond to local need, so if it’s a ‘stop smoking’ course the community wants then that’s what we will do.”
With its dedicated volunteers and five staff, The Hub is equipped to run such wide-ranging activities as first aid courses, gardening, Tai Chi and breastfeeding workshops.
Nurturing the Future has a strong focus on parenting, offering parent-to-parent mentoring.
One local mum, Mel, credits The Hub for helping her to be a better parent, and says it’s like an “extended family” . “We prop each other up. If I am having a hard time because my daughter’s teething and sick, there’s always someone to give me advice and support.”
The Tindall Foundation has contributed funding towards the set-up and general operating costs of The Hub.
