About this Appeal

Still here supporting Kiwis in need...   

Like Bex, who felt helpless with four young boys, she was living on the edge week to week.With only bread for meals, and deciding which child should get the last nappy.

To make ends meet...

Developing a practical household budget is often a key point in providing a way forward. With other tailored support, like advocacy and social work, the family can often work together to become independent. Creating opportunities to break the cycle of poverty.

For advice and counselling...

Support continues a pathway of long-term change, upheld by our many additional wraparound services. Courses like the Positive Lifestyle Programme (PLP) helps deal with depression, anger, grief and stress, building self-esteem and gaining skills in assertiveness, goal setting and problem-solving. Building a better future.
