Fundamental Activities:

  1. Providing social support services to the most vulnerable children in our communities — including victims of family violence, addiction, neglect and abuse.
  2. Lending guidance and support to parents, whānau and communities to help them build broader knowledge and resilience.
  3. Offering early learning and childcare to under 5s to set children on the right path for better educational and life outcomes.
