Te Ata Centre at 52 Keeling Rd will re-open to ALL members, peer and or community support workers, tutors, students, visitors and anyone else who uses the facility during Alert Level 2 under strict Health and Safety guidelines implemented by the Government and the Waitemata District Health Board.
We will do all we can to continue to stay connected to our member’s in a way that protects everyone’s health and safety.
We are committed to following Government advice to close all non-essential services until advised otherwise. Over the next week we will be updating our website at and on our Facebook page: about proposed online classes.
Please check in to these websites and pages for more information about how you can join an online course when they are available.
