Building our community together in Merivale, Tauranga
Merivale Community Centre in Tauranga has been providing services and programmes to the community for 25 years. We want to achieve a thriving, vibrant community realising its potential where people are safe, connected, and making healthy choices for themselves, their whanau and their community.
Our tamariki are at the heart of all that we do. We provide a safe, welcoming and supportive space for them to learn new things, feel supported and connect with their peers and the community.
We deliver a diverse range of programmes and services to meet the needs of the community including:
• Whanau support, including social work, and referral services
• Budget advice
• Advocacy support
• Youth development programmes, including leadership and early intervention support
• Intensive mentoring programmes
• After school programme
• Holiday programmes
• Facilitation of community hui, including regular residents’ meetings
• Facilitation of community group use of venue for external programmes and support groups
• Community development projects
• Organising community events
• Advocacy for community safety and collaborative projects
We would love your support to continue this important work in Tauranga Moana.

It's been too long! We have a Facebook page, Twitter and our own website now, so keep up to date with us. It's still a struggle to meet our operating costs, as government funding has stayed static to liitle providers like us for three years essentially. But we keep going and have a great team. Think about supporting us again this year.
Kia ora whanau, thank you for your kind donation. We really appreciate your support, every little bit helps to keep our doors open and working with our tamariki, rangatahi and whanau.

Thank you so much for your donation! We were donated two couches, which need a good clean, so we will put it towards that. It goes a long way to making a nicer space for the kids and whanau who use our space.This means so much! Arohanui Sophie and the Team at Merivale Community Centre
