The Wanaka Community Hub is a spacious, beautifully designed building that house a number of permanent and part - time tenants from a range of organisations. These include Community Networks, Presbyterian Support and other social service and support organisations in addition to community groups, clubs, art and social groups.
There are meeting rooms and large spaces that can be booked out for events and functions and it is hoped that in the first year of opening everyone in Wanaka will pass through it's doors. It is a hub for everyone in the community.
Core values at the heart of this initiative are:
Integrity: Stakeholders will trust WCH to be accountable and to live its values, and pursue its mission and vision in everything it does.
Inclusiveness: WCH will thrive with the diversity of individuals, groups, ages, cultures, abilities, who connect and feel acceptance there: locals and tourists alike.
Innovation: WCH will be a flexible, beautiful, inviting facility that supports sustainable, caring and creative futures within Upper Clutha.
Financial Sustainability: WCH will seek to at least match income to expenditure and once established operate at a small profit. The facility will be cost effective for users.
