To view all the activities and events Centrepoint has to offer, please visit our full Google calendar!
What we found as we explored possible partnerships for Centrepoint is that they could take many forms. Thus, whatever form they do take, our partnerships are intended to provide added value: services and opportunities that Centrepoint considers will be of interest to our members, but itself does not offer.
The simplest form of partnership is website link exchanges: quality rather than quantity has been the key criteria. Below, you will find such quality third-party sites and resources. If you have a favourite resource that is not included in the list, please let us know
