SCT is connecting people who need help, with people who can provide hope through bringing volunteers and communities together. We are striving to be a resource for authentic service in and to the surrounding community, by working to strengthen the lives of individuals and families through education, counselling and support services. Shore Community Trust is working in connection to Shore Community Church.

CAP Life Skills
Many people and families in communities around New Zealand are restricted from full and vibrant lives simply from a lack of good financial literacy and essential life education. CAP Life Skills provides a fun and friendly community for people to belong, and receive the life skills they need to thrive on a low income.
24-7 Youthwork is a national organisation that facilitates partnerships between schools and churches to jointly fund part-time youth-workers in schools. SCT currently has two youth workers in Albany Junior High School who work alongside students to enhance personal well-being and promote heathy decision-making and life skills.
With nearly half of all Kiwis living without a budget, the CAP Money course is a fantastic tool that equips people with essential money management skills. At its core, the CAP Money course helps people put money in its rightful place in their lives—it gives a budget, a framework to live within, and sound principles that will help them wisely manage their money.
