Papatoetoe¹s old fire station will once again help to save lives but this time as the new home for Youthline. Its doors have been nailed shut since the Fire Service moved out in 2003, but they were reopened recently and renovations are due to start straight away. John Beveridge, General Manager of Pacific Steel has been spearheading Fletcher Building¹s contribution to the refurbishment, which includes financial and product support from seven business units.
³This was a great opportunity to put something back into our local community" says John. "South Auckland doesn¹t have a centre like this and it is an ideal fit for the businesses involved to do something in a community where a large proportion of our workforce live".
Youthline plays a significant role in the community, receiving more than 300,000 calls or texts from troubled youth each year."
"This is something positive big business can do to help with youth issues." "This building is 50 years old and is cold and draughty it is brilliantly located, but it now needs to be warm and energy efficient, it needs to be quiet (for counselling) and it needs to have a heart. It needs high quality building solutions for its transformation from fire station to youth hub", says John.
Experiencing a Kiwi Can lesson is like being at Rainbow’s
‘Kiwi Can has motivated and inspired the kids to do what they’ve been taught: following instructions the first time, not the second time! Some of the kids will say, ‘Remember, that’s not what we do in Kiwi Can- I don’t need to remind them!’
