Community Wellbeing funding gives boost to 28 groups
More than $27,500 of Community Wellbeing funding has been allocated to community groups in Waitakere City through their
local community board.
Senior citizens clubs, church groups, kindergartens, scout groups, surf lifesaving patrols and homework centres are
among the 28 recipients from the City’s Henderson, Massey, New Lynn and Waitakere wards.
The Community Wellbeing Fund aligns with Waitakere City Council’s Community Assistance Policy, which aims to strengthen
the ability of community groups to meet the needs of people in their local area.
Presentations of funding for groups with a city-wide focus will take place at a special meeting of the Council’s Finance
and Operational Performance Committee on October 23. The Committee will then decide on the funding allocation at its
regular meeting on November 10, with a total of $40,000 available for distribution.
