Family Works New Zealand

Safe children. Strong families. Connected communities.

Family Works’ vision is for Aotearoa NZ to be the best place in the world to grow up – a place where all tamariki are safe, families and whānau are strong and communities are connected.

Our social services are designed to support people experiencing challenging or difficult times. We’ve been supporting communities nationwide for more than 100 years and understand everyone’s circumstances are different. We support children, young people and families to make positive changes in their lives using the strengths and resources they already have.

Family Works New Zealand facilitates and support seven regional Family Works organisations, each offering services that respond to local needs.
