The SkyCity Hamilton Community Trust is committed to supporting families to thrive and communities to prosper and will be prioritising funding to four outcome areas: financial capability, employment and economic prosperity, pathways to employment and economic prosperity, and healthy and stable families.

Pathways to Employment and Economic Prosperity

  • Young people are supported to thrive at every stage of their development towards a successful and prosperous adulthood.
  • Children, young people and families have access to education, are supported in educational pathways and achieve educational success.

Healthy and Stable Families

  • Families develop attitudes, behaviours and skills that play a positive role in improving their health, safety and resilience.
