Funding Managers form an essential link between The Tindall Foundation and the groups we support. They play an integral role in making decisions about donations on our behalf so that smaller organisations and projects have the means to support communities and restore our environment. They give donations in two Programme Areas: Supporting Families & Social Services, and Caring for our Environment. We are yet to find another philanthropic organisation here or overseas that has adopted this approach to funding. “We have very high trust relationships with our Funding Managers, relying on them to use their local knowledge to distribute our funds within their communities,” said Evelyn Gauntlett, The Tindall Foundation’s Systems and Relationships Manager. Introduced in 1997, the system directs bulk funds to 18 Funding Managers that are engaged on three-year agreements (divided into Regional, Faith and Environmental managers). Local Allocation Committees in Northland, Tairawhiti/Gisborne and Taranaki also make recommendations to our Trustees. The system has won widespread support in the charitable sector. Commented Anne Dickinson, Executive Officer for the New Zealand Catholic Bishops: “The Tindall Foundation’s partnership with Funding Managers allows its funding to reach deep into the community, enabling these organisations to bring change to those who need it most.” For more information contact: Evelyn Gauntlett, Systems and Relationships Manager Email: evelyn.gauntlett@tindall.org.nz Website: www.tindall.org.nz

After the February 2011 Christchurch Earthquake, New Brighton Community Gardens and Sydenham-based Christchurch South Community Gardens found increased demand from residents for both food and social support. “We opened temporarily on Saturdays after the quakes,” remembered Cathy Sweet, Business Manager of New Brighton Community Gardens (NBCG). “So many people wanted company and a positive activity.” Interacting with others is a key attraction for the gardeners. For Graeme Dickey, a volunteer at NBCG, “It’s about meeting more locals and making good friends. And I’m learning much more about gardening and growing fruit trees.” The Tindall Foundation backed both of these community gardens as part of our strategy to support and improve the resilience of those who were affected by the Canterbury Earthquakes. At Christchurch South Community Gardens (CSCG), our donation helped with projects like public signage. “This has allowed us to portray a range of sustainability concepts, from valuing Te Reo to caring about our water quality,” commented Christine Blance, Trust Manager. These innovative gardens are nurturing strong communities, who help each other through the challenges they continue to face as Christchurch rebuilds.

Youth Connections Across Auckland

Youth Connections Across Auckland (YCAA) is a highly successful initiative to guide school leavers into a future of work or study. Auckland Council runs the programme with support from Hugh Green Foundation, Auckland Airport Community Trust and The Tindall Foundation. With 34,000 young Aucklanders not in education, employment or training (NEET) as of March 2013 – an increase from 26,000 in June 2012 – the issue is pressing. Youth Connections brokers work to link young people with local employers, agencies, schools and tertiary education providers. “The programme is a godsend,” commented Ron Brightmore, Careers Advisor at Mount Roskill Grammar School. Dale Williams, Mayor of Otorohanga and Chairman of the Mayors Taskforce for Jobs, described YCAA as “a powerful movement designed to deliver the greatest collaboration of local employers, young people and communities in Auckland’s history.” Ieremia Neva secured a job at Manta Marine through YCAA. He said: “I have a full-time job and am starting a steel fabrication apprenticeship. I would probably still be at home mucking around if it wasn’t for this programme.” At The Tindall Foundation, we are committed to supporting projects that address issues of unemployment and help provide young people with pathways to jobs. We granted $710,000 over two years to YCAA to employ a Project Manager and three Youth Connections brokers, and to support tracking software and a website.

Putting a modern spin on reading, The Kindle Book Reading Club is inspiring a love of books among young people in Waiau. This small North Canterbury settlement lacks the range of after-school learning opportunities found in larger centres, so local flower grower Marina Shearer formed the club in response. The club purchases Kindle e-readers that members aged 12 to 16 can use to read selected books. Over a 12-month period the participants write book reviews and reports, as well as attending fortnightly ‘book club’ discussions. On completion, they get to keep their Kindle. “The incentive to own your own Kindle has been great,” said Marina, the club’s Manager. “In October 2013 our first group of Kindle owners emerged from the book club.” Marina saw reading as the avenue for rural youth to view the world through different eyes, broaden their ideas, and also help with their school English programme. Kitty Brett, a 16-year-old member, said she had benefited from discovering “books that I would not have picked for myself but have really enjoyed. I find it interesting to hear other people’s opinions about the books and I like reading in the Kindle format.” The Tindall Foundation hopes to improve wellbeing and resilience among young people and the wider community through our Funding Managers, especially in isolated and rural communities. We allocated this programme $5000 per year for up to three years, enabling ten children to complete each year’s course and to earn a Kindle.

The challenge of being a parent and supporting a family is what inspired Linda Biggs to establish the Manurewa Parenting Hub (MPH) in 2008. It started as a personal vision to help other parents, but in just a few years MPH has achieved much more. “Parents talk about being more connected and less lonely, more confident about their role as parents and being involved with their child’s school, and generally more positive about life,” said Linda, now Manager of MPH. MPH is housed in six schools in Manurewa, with a staff of eight (six of them local residents). Its main focuses are positive parenting, healthy family relationships and encouraging parental involvement in children’s education. The Hub also offers help with work opportunities and its Return to the Workforce programme has guided 30 parents into employment as teacher aides. From July 2012 to June 2013 MPH delivered programmes at local schools to 4500 parent attendees. Maile Young, a mother of three, said MPH has changed her life. “It has made me a confident person and I feel I can take on any challenge that comes my way.” At The Tindall Foundation we know that the first three years of a child’s life are critical to long-term wellbeing and success. Through our donations to projects like MPH, we aim to support parents by giving them access to the vital skills they need to help their children in these early years.

A growing population of over-65s is creating an increased need for support around issues such as elder abuse. Age Concern is at the forefront of New Zealand’s response, with its nationwide advocacy for the rights and wellbeing of older people. “Our vision is to provide an inclusive society, where older people, koroua and kuia are respected, valued, supported and empowered,” said Anna Auty, Social Worker for Levin-based Age Concern Horowhenua.

In Horowhenua, the Age Concern office provides services, information and advocacy for some 700 older people, plus their families, carers and allied professionals. United Way, The Tindall Foundation’s Funding Manager in the region, recognised its need for more resources. “All of this work in Horowhenua is done by a staff of 2, with 18 volunteers,” explained Greg Thorburn, a volunteer at United Way in Manawatu. “At the time of their evaluation, Age Concern Horowhenua was dealing with 56 cases of elder abuse.”

of the most disadvantaged people in our communities. This project is improving the prospects of older people by connecting with those who are vulnerable, then empowering and supporting them.

Our donation has helped Age Concern to increase the employment of its part-time Manager to 20 hours per week, which Anna welcomed. “The increasing need in the community for our services had become difficult to manage without having the Manager working longer hours,” she said.

Taranaki Adult Literacy Services

TALS Tutor Vicki Douds preparing resources for adult literacy classes

“Whilst most New Zealanders are comfortable with their literacy skills, a large number are not,” observed Taranaki Adult Literacy Services (TALS) Chairperson Tony Pugh. “With our input and support, these people can enjoy a positive change in their social, work and recreational lives.” TALS’ mission is to provide quality adult literacy and learning assistance to adults throughout Taranaki at no cost to the learner. During the period from 2009 to 2012 the service helped over 400 people across the province to gain literacy and numeracy skills, a quest that has proved invaluable in the job market and everyday life. Michael, a 60-year-old student, recalled: “I was a bit slow at school and got pushed through the system without really having my issues dealt with. I missed out on so much. I now find it a big achievement to text, to read the newspaper and to do my work so much better.” TALS’ work helps with skills like budgeting, because there is a link between lack of numeracy skills and poor financial decisions. Students are given confidential, one-to-one tuition using a range of resources that can prove to be life changing. From 2009 to 2012, The Tindall Foundation supported Taranaki Adult Literacy Services with a donation of $10,000 per year towards its Manager’s wages. We want to help develop the literacy of people and families in order to improve their wellbeing, resilience and progress in areas of their lives such as stepping up in employment.

Five Good Ideas

“It made me think about what my organisation could do better — I can’t wait to use the handouts!” This is typical of the feedback from attendees at Five Good Ideas, a series of lunchtime workshops targeting community and voluntary organisations across Auckland. North Shore Community and Social Services (NSCSS) devised Five Good Ideas after recognising demand in the community for professional development workshops at an affordable price. “Issues like governance, media management, strategic planning and capacity building are areas of high need for many, particularly smaller, community agencies,” noted Ruth Greenaway, Training and Communications Coordinator. Through monthly two-hour workshops, Five Good Ideas addresses that need, at an affordable $20 per participant including lunch and resources. The series reaches over 300 people a year. In 2013, NSCSS worked with other branches of the Council of Social Services to take the workshops beyond the North Shore and Central Auckland. It further extended its remit by delivering five additional workshops to explore issues in depth over a four-hour period, with material tailored to smaller groups. The Tindall Foundation has more than doubled its annual donation in order to back this extended programme. We support capacity building and the promotion of best practice for community and voluntary organisations; Five Good Ideas gives key skills to help achieve those goals.

Sadly, there is little coastal forest remaining on the eastern coast of the South Island, but Tuhaitara Coastal Park is helping to restore the balance. Te Kohaka o Tuhaitara Trust aims to re-create the native environment in this 575-hectare park north of Christchurch, between the Waimakariri River mouth and Waikuku. Biota nodes are a key tool. Greg Byrnes, Park Manager, described them as a series of fenced areas around waterholes, up to 300 metres apart. So far the park has 9 nodes covering 12,550 square metres, planted with over 3500 native plants, which will gradually create a biodiversity skeleton for restoring forest, sand dunes and freshwater lagoons. The programme “has been very successful at engaging not only local schools, but also other groups and businesses, to adopt nodes,” commented Jenny Lynch, WWF Community Conservation Coordinator. The Tindall Foundation aims to support Kiwis in developing, implementing and teaching the protection and restoration of our natural environment. This project is a fantastic example of how communities can affect the natural environment and protect and enhance it for future generations. Volunteers’ energy will, said Alan Jolliffe, Chair of Te Kohaka o Tuhaitara Trust, “ensure the success of the 200-year vision to return the lands to indigenous coastal forest. Ma pango, ma whero ka oti te mahi [Together we can get the job done].”

The Taita Pomare Mission Project supports families with regular ‘kai nights’, shared meals that provide food and fellowship (Anglican Care)

Rev. Charles (Huri Huri) Noanoa has literally made the Taita Pomare Mission Project his mission in life. This multi-stranded community programme, based at St Matthews Anglican Church in Taita, Lower Hutt, incorporates a range of programmes. The mission supports prisoner re-integration, youth justice, a food bank, community gardens, ‘kai nights’ and the Tumeke Taita touch rugby team. The outcomes are many and varied: from making a positive impact for families struggling to put food on the table, to supporting prisoners released from Rimutaka Prison, including preventing them from re-offending. Rev. Noanoa has worked intensively to help a dozen former inmates with housing, employment and faith support. The project is proving its worth: since 2009, the majority of participants have stayed out of prison. That is a life-changer for men like Tonto Tuhoe, who summarised the work of Taita Pomare in a few words: “Charles has walked alongside me and supported me to regain my life.” At The Tindall Foundation, we aim to improve the wellbeing and resilience of communities. This project, which we support through our Funding Manager, Anglican Care Network, does just that for people in Taita. “Every day I feel privileged to be part of this journey,” said Anne Hannah, Funding Manager for the Taita Pomare Mission Project.

Established to help community organisations team up to achieve better outcomes, The Working Together More Fund (He Putea Mahi Tahi) is itself the result of collaboration between five funders — Wayne Francis Charitable Trust, J.R. McKenzie Trust, Todd Foundation, Hugh Green Foundation and The Tindall Foundation. The Working Together More Fund helps groups to achieve more and better outcomes for their communities, explained Bede Martin, Project Manager: “Sometimes it’s a donation to cover the costs of exploring a collaborative initiative, or to get one off the ground. Central to grant decisions is how applicants will strengthen communities through collaborating with other community groups.” Starting in 2009, The Tindall Foundation has made a regular commitment to the Fund’s salary and project costs, and funding pool. Through this collaborative funding effort, we hope to improve the effectiveness of community and voluntary organisations and strengthen partnerships within the community sector. The Working Together More Fund has given out grants totalling $900,000 to over 420 collaborating groups. Among its beneficiaries is the Wellington After-Care Association, which in 2012 collaborated with the Wellington Circus Trust to offer a skills development programme for its disabled clients – an experience described as “very rewarding for all concerned” by Wellington After-Care General Manager Kervin Farr.

Combined Adolescent Challenge Training Unit Support (CACTUS)

Boxing Day

Rafting down 22 rapids on the Whataroa River teaches the CACTUS crew to work together (CACTUS)

What started out as one policeman’s vision has become a successful youth development project making positive changes to young people’s lives on the West Coast. Community Constable Rob Fox founded the programme in Hokitika in 1998. CACTUS draws its inspiration from police and army training camps, with exercises and outdoor activities that take adolescents out of their comfort zones and teach skills, self-reliance and teamwork. Courses challenge participants with adrenalin-packed activities like climbing, caving, rafting, mountain biking and tramping. “CACTUS has helped me to stay fit and mentally disciplined — I would recommend it to anyone who likes the outdoors,” commented 16-year-old Cody Weaver. At The Tindall Foundation, we want to empower young people to cope with the challenges of adolescence and help prepare them for adulthood. Through our local West Coast Funding Manager we have made a three-year commitment to CACTUS, donating $8000 annually since 2010. With this funding CACTUS has run courses engaging more than 60 teenagers — some of whom have been referred to the programme by youth services, police or schools. CACTUS Westland Trust Coordinator, John Winsley, said, “Some of these young people have attended multiple courses. Over time, leadership skills are developed and longer-standing participants are able to encourage newer members.” For more information contact: John Winsley, Coordinator Email: cactushoki@gmail.com Website: http://cactushoki.blogspot.co.nz
