What is the NCCH Educational Awards Scheme?
In 2013, as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations in 2014, North Coast Community Housing (NCCH) introduced the Educational Awards Scheme. The Scheme is designed to assist NCCH tenants by easing the financial burden of educating their children and/or themselves. It is also designed to encourage tenants to pursue their ambitions in sport and creative arts.
By supporting students to achieve, the NCCH Educational Awards Scheme is a way of building community capacity, leading to future social and economic engagement in society.
To date, NCCH has assisted a number of students and adults to meet some of their educational expenses.
