Launch of crowd funder campaign May 30, 2019

We launched our Crowd Funder project on givealittle at the end of May 2019. We are busy seeking sponsorship and help to spread the word with the aim of raising $90,000 to assist us as we try to transition to other funding sources to replace the $90,000+ a year that will be lost when the MDHB ends our women’s health contract in July.

MDHB Board decides against reconsidering our contract February 26, 2019

We presented to the MDHB Board 26/02/19 in an attempt to get them to reconsider their termination of our women’s health contract. The Mayor and Dr Anna Skinner joined us for the delegation and we had great community support. The vote of 6 against 4 was fairly close – it was a divided Board. We continue to strive to find a way to replace this huge funding loss. STILL OPEN AND AVAILABLE AS USUAL.

Community support swells for trusted women’s health centre February 19, 2019

In January 2019 we were notified of the termination of our MDHB women’s health contract which provides well over half of our annual income. This hit the news in February when it became public. We are having wonderful support from the community, PNCC support including the Mayor, and support from local doctors. We have a good feeling that we will survive this huge challenge and hopefully have the MDHB reverse it’s decision.
