Brunswick UC provides the space, pays the utilities and FUNdraises for identified projects each year. Projects have included infrastructure and social engagement programs. We are currently working on a collaborative project to develop a community garden.
However the relationship between the ASWC and BUC is about much more than this. We value the relationships that are formed with staff and clients. A staff member recently commented:
Offering welcome sounds really simple but it’s actually really intentional and complex and requires a great amount of thought and energy. It’s actually quite rare and the fact that BUC has a commitment to using this space in this way is really cool.
