We build strong families

Family Works Northern builds strong families that learn, grow and thrive. We champion the cause of children/ tamariki in our communities and support them and their families/ whānau to flourish.

We aim to make home safe for children and, by building strong families, to contribute to healthy communities that are free from family violence. Our vision is for Aotearoa New Zealand to become the best place to raise children. As part of Presbyterian Support Northern, we’re committed to creating a better life for everyone.

The outcomes:

  • Strong healthy families.
  • Children/ tamariki make good choices.
  • Parents/ mātua build on their strengths.
  • Safe children.
  • Strong healthy communities.

  • We recognise that everybody has strengths.

  • We operate under a recognised code of ethics.
  • We are respectful in dealing with children/ tamariki.
