Haere Mai

Welcome to our e-newsletter

It is hard to believe a quarter of the year has almost passed. We have been very busy working on interesting projects over the last few months and how time flies!
Some of our key projects/organisations we have been working alongside include, Trees that Count, Reconnecting Northland, Youth Connections, VOYCE – Whakarongo Mai, the Vivid Economics Research paper and many more. You can read more about some these projects below.

We also welcome two new Funding Manager representatives, Sally Lavea from ADRA and Nicola Edwards from Auckland Foundation (formally Auckland Communities Foundation) who will be working alongside Martina in the distribution of TTF funding and `Supporting Families and Social Services` within their communities. Welcome to the team folks! Great to have you on board!

Best wishes for a wonderful autumn,

John McCarthy
