Reply To: I’m hoping someone can give me some advice? I’m not a business but I started from the ground up a community centre last december 2019 and of course had to close our doors due to Covid 19. Apart from having our Certificate of Incorporation I am still in the process of getting our IRD,  Charities number and funding. Is there some advice or financial help that we may be able to apply for to help with ongoing essential costs. We are not a church or council run community centre. Thankyou. Heather Taylor

Heather, there is a chance you maybe able to claim the wage subsidy but it probably requires some closer look there – suggest reaching out to Annah’s group makes a lot of sense – all the best – https://covid19.govt.nz/businesses-and-employees/businesses-and-services/
