Taupua Tairāwhiti Second Intake Closing Soon

The second intake of community organisations for Taupua Tairāwhiti is closing on Friday 18 February.

Taupua Tairāwhiti is a shared services model developed by Sport Gisborne Tairāwhiti, and funded by Trust Tairāwhiti, the JN Williams Memorial Trust, The Department of Internal Affairs, The Sunrise Foundation and Provincial Growth Fund

Taupua Tairāwhiti Project Manager, Leanne Harrison, said “We are so excited to be able to take on more groups so soon. We’re able to do this because our current groups have been so responsive, and we’ve worked with them to get a range of great results in just four short months. With our modelling we know we can keep supporting them but also have space to expand our reach and take on more community groups that need a little extra help to reach the next level”.

The aim of the Shared Services initiative is to provide a fit-for-purpose entity that offers a range of services for the sporting community and not-for-profit sector. These services include financial management, administration and information management, and communications.

The first intake saw seven organisations sign up, Gisborne Basketball Association, Gisborne Riding for the Disabled, Gisborne Boardriders Club, Swim for Life, Horouta Waka Hoe, Parafed Tairāwhiti and Tairāwhiti Softball Association.

“The support we have received from Taupua Tairāwhiti has been amazing. It’s reassuring to know that our financials are in good hands, allowing us to focus on our purpose, reaching more riders and changing more lives.” Said Amy Hopkins of Gisborne Riding for the Disabled.
