These include IRD, Community Law, Justices of the Peace, Volunteering Central, Budget Advice, and Careers Services. We also hold an extensive range of social support information such as Immigration forms, Work and Income forms, and details of health professionals and counselling services.
- Facilitation and Coordination - We coordinate a range of activities and services including the Community Food Bank, Meals on Wheels, Wheels to Dunstan Bus Service, Total Mobility (discounted taxis), and a local interagency meeting of social service providers.
- Strategic Community Development - We work alongside the community to identify gaps in services and advocate on their behalf to increase social capital. Examples include: Wanaka Alcohol Group, Life Matters Suicide Prevention Group, Champion for Older People Group.
- Rooms for hire - We have rooms and office space available for hire for business and not-for-profit organisations.
