Improving The Lifelong Outcomes Of Tamariki

I Want to Help

This whakatauki talks to the community, to collaboration and a strengths-based approach. It acknowledges that everybody has something to offer, a piece of the puzzle, and we can all flourish by working together.
  • In 2021,  52,000 New Zealanders struggled to pay their power bill, and 1.6 million struggled to purchase food.
  • In 2018, there were 40,000 hospital admissions (15,000 in Starship) for patients with health symptoms related to poor housing.
  • Rapidly rising inflation and cost of living have exacerbated an already tenuous situation for our community.

Our program successes are considerable and in order for us to reach our full potential we welcome your support.

With your food basket and my food basket, the people will thrive.
