Family Works Northern

Our Vision

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. Family Works Northern is a professional, not-for-profit organisation that’s here to support families in every way we can.

We’re part of Presbyterian Support Northern, a charitable social services provider that’s been around for over 130 years. Like them, we’re passionate about strengthening New Zealand families as they face life’s challenges.

Through our services, we aim for to help build strong healthy families, help children/tamariki make good choices, parents/mātua build on their strengths and help build a strong health community for keeping children safe.
