Plunket and Family Works are working together to provide families/whānau and babies with a range of services to help you and baby have the best start to life.
We have trained and experienced family workers at all of our Family Works sites to walk alongside families and help them make positive, lasting changes.
Family Works partners with Plunket to support women and their babies in the Auckland Region Women's Correction Facility.
When parents separate, it can be a stressful time for the whole family. It's better for everyone if you can sort out your children's day-to-day care without the time and expense of going through the Family Court.
We're here to support you to give your child the very best start in life. We have a free service for parents /caregivers who face challenges in parenting their babies.
Parenting is probably one of the hardest jobs around, but few people have any training for it. If you're interested in learning more about being a better parent, The Incredible Years programme could be for you.
We're here to support parents improve their parenting skills while they are in prison, and to communicate better with their children.
We offer Parenting through Separation group sessions with trained programme leaders - usually in two sessions of two hours each. You will be able to discuss your parenting issues.
We offer a Strengthening Step-families group programme to help parents understand the unique dynamics of their new family and how the changes affect each family member.
