Our focus is to promote, manage, develop and support activities which will build the capacity and sustainability of the social sector in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
We also have an objective of providing programmes that focuses on reaching out to young people, not only to encourage the next generation of volunteers to be involved with their community, but also to offer transferrable skills and/or experiences with potential future employment opportunities.
TENT believes a vibrant, healthy and safe community is created when we build an environment that not only recognises the efforts of those that contribute to the needs of the community but also creates an exciting energy that encourages engagement and working together for the overall wellbeing of the community.
The services we provide are based on specific and individual needs of the organisations that help our community. Examples of our work include: Developing operational processes, recruiting volunteers, securing seed funding and designing marketing materials for a newly formed food rescue organisation; Coordinating a free Community Christmas Lunch event for 300 members of the community; Mentoring a youth-led youth focused organisation; Providing Administration and Coordination support for a Homelessness Advocacy group; Being an Approved Agency for Police Vetting volunteers; Facilitating a Planning Workshop for youth.
