Home & Family Christchurch - supporting the welfare of children

We want to acknowledge the team behind Home & Family who work with children, youth, adults and families in Christchurch facing challenges to build positive outcomes in their lives.

Home & Family has been in support of the Christchurch community for over 120 years. Some of the work that they do include:

  • Providing children home with whānau who cherish them, keep them safe and nurture their potential.
  • Residential parenting programme which has 24 hours supported accommodation for parents with children.
  • Help with affordable, professional and confidential counselling services for couples, youth and children.

Their work in the family violence sector aims to ensure that the voices of children and young people impacted by family violence are heard and their needs met.

"Post Lockdown we noticed a 30% increase in demand for our child therapy services.”
