Whau ACE is an independent provider of Adult and Community Education (ACE) based in West Auckland and also responding to equivalent needs in wider Auckland through libraries, to support people to find jobs and prepare for employment. Since funding was cut to this sector in 2009, the New Lynn, Avondale, Kelston and Green Bay areas no longer had access to quality community-based adult education opportunities. Whau ACE has successfully stepped in to bridge the gap and provide courses requested by their community. We have seen the Whau ACE community facility grow as it fosters links, identifies needs in the community, an urgent one being getting into work, and gets into the hard work of getting people they help they need. This mahi of promoting education amongst adults in our community promotes social cohesion, linking adults to further education, or vocational training, into jobs or being ready to work as a valuable employee. As an ACE neighbour of Whau House in New Lynn, we fully support their valuable work in the community.
