ASE’s relationship with Tiny Toones began in January 2011 with provision of ASE Resources to undertake a five week assignment. The initial brief was to conduct an assessment of Tiny Toones and to build the capability and capacity of the finance function. The assessment was completed quickly and ASE resources moved on to coach the finance function to develop and implement reporting and budgeting capabilities.

Since the assignment, ASE have continued to provided assistance to Tiny Toones.
