Transact joins Trentham Community House Charitable Trust

Transact shake hands with the Trentham Community House Charitable Trust

Trentham Community House appoints their first Community Development Worker, as a result of private sponsorship by energy sector business, Transact.

Upper Hutt, 2 August 2014 – The Trentham Community House Charitable Trust has appointed their first staff member since opening their doors in April 2013.

Over the last year, the community house has been operating purely by the hard work and dedication of volunteers in the community. Residents in the Trentham area, passionate to keep their community house open to support local whanau, walked side by side with the charitable trust board of trustees whilst the search for funding was underway for a paid Community Development Worker.

We are pleased to announce that Transact Management Limited, a firm that provides commercial, regulatory and operational services in the energy sector, have committed to funding a Community Development Worker until March 2015, at which time funding will be reviewed. Transact’s Managing Director, David Bott, visited Trentham Community House and identified the importance of the community house immediately. Mr Bott made the following observation:

“Trentham Community House provides a sanctuary for those in the Trentham community seeking support to deal with poor health, financial hardship, educational underachievement, social isolation, violence and crime. Transact is honoured to be associated with an endeavour like this, that is very much needed, and is being carried out in a spirit of kindness and generosity”.

The Trentham Community House Charitable Trust has successfully appointed Mrs Maureen Fox as the Community Development Worker, starting officially in the role on 28 July. Maureen, a local Upper Hutt resident, has an in-depth background in community work and working with both agencies and community.

The Trust's Treasurer and Secretary, Mr Chris Carson, acknowledges the hard work of volunteers and fresh opportunity this appointment brings to the community.

Mr Carson says "the appointment of the Community Development Worker is a major step forward for the Trentham Community House. The position is the linchpin between the volunteers and the Trentham community and will provide the much needed direction for the activities and programmes of the Trentham Community House, while reaching into the community and working alongside the Trentham residents and not for profit and government agencies."
