Buddies are volunteers that spend time with people with a disability in order to support them to gain access to and positive experiences in the community. For example going to the gym, having a coffee, visiting the museum or even doing some volunteering together! Volunteers are matched with people based on similar interests and location. You can commit to anything from a couple of hours a month to a few hours a week.
Avalon is a charitable trust that provides services in the Bay of Plenty to support individuals with a recognised disability. A key component of Avalon’s work is to reduce barriers to inclusion in community for the people we support.
Our brand new community centre and additional apartments are now open to view at The Bayview; an unsuspecting oasis for retirement living. Tucked away in the heart of Tauranga, you’ll find this lovely gem that boasts stunning views of Mount Maunganui and the harbour.
It’s easy to live the lifestyle you want at The Bayview. Start your day with a soak in our indoor pool before enjoying a latté from the onsite café. Then challenge friends to a game of bowls, work out at the gym, or invite your family over for a BBQ date.
Thanks to our village’s friendly and vibrant community, you’ll feel right at home from the get-go. But, when you do need a bit of “me time”, you can relax in your brand new, architecturally-designed apartment, complete with stylish fittings and open-plan living.
With luxurious grounds and apartments, friendly neighbours, and close proximity to all the best things the city has to offer – The Bayview is certainly the hidden gem of Tauranga.
