We are really excited about the improvements being made to the Centre this year!

So far in 2018, we have seen the creation of two brand new toilets and changing areas, a new heating system, improvements to the reception area, new security measures and a lovely new meeting room designed for small group activities or one-to-one confidential consultations. This has been complemented by lots of new decoration work around the centre.

We are especially pleased to announce a substantial refurbishment of our sports hall, with the fitting of a brand new floor and major redecoration.

Unfortunately, this means that the sports hall will be unavailable for use from 16th September to 15th October 2018.

“We are all very pleased to see the sports hall having a major refurbishment this year. Together with all of the other recent improvements throughout the centre, we believe that this has made a real difference to service users, staff and volunteers alike.


The Centre is now much more welcoming and comfortable for all users, and the improved security has also added to the visitor experience. The new heating system will be a great benefit as winter approaches and we are especially pleased with the forthcoming sports hall upgrade.


On behalf of Auckland Youth and Community Centre’s Board of Trustees, I would like to thank our funders who have made the work possible, the staff and volunteers who have overseen the work todate, and our contractors who are delivering to our specifications.


Most importantly I would like to thank the users of our building for their patience and co-operation; I am sure they will all agree that any disruption will have been worth it. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to the new sports hall very soon.


We are already planning our next stage of improvements as we look ahead to 2019 and beyond.”
