Given the current COVID-19 environment we have temporarily disabled our ‘feedback’ feature. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Cromwell Resource Centre Trust governs the Cromwell Community House. The Trust comprised of 5 volunteer trustees and the Community House is staffed by a Manager and a Community House Coordinator. The building is owned by the Central Otago District Council. The trust is grateful to NZ Lotteries, COGS, CODC, Central Lakes Trust and Pub Charity for their continued support of our facility.

The coordinator offers a wide range of information and facilitation to individuals and community groups.

Many services are conducted via the Cromwell Community House (CCH) and as part of the government “ Heartland Initiative.” The CCH has regular contact with government departments and holds many forms for these; e.g. Passport, immigration, IRD, WINZ and many others – please ask.
