Welcome to Auckland Youth and Community Centre!
We are a vibrant local community hub… welcoming children, young people and families on the Woodhouse Close estate and the surrounding area.
Our mission is to support local children, young people and families with opportunities to widen their horizons. We do this through a range of activities, events and learning experiences.
Through our work, we aim to enhance community provision on Woodhouse Close estate, and beyond. AYCC’s activity programme will continue to develop in response to local need. New users are welcome… what types of activities do YOU most want to see?
We are always looking for new volunteers to support our work. Extra pairs of hands would help us to deliver existing projects and also start up new activities. We have lots of events planned for 2018-19 for which we would really appreciate your support… please contact us to talk about how you can get involved!
