Making Aotearoa New Zealand
the best place to raise children
in flourishing families
They come from all over the lower North Island and beyond. They come from all walks of life, backgrounds and cultures.
Some of them have been involved with Presbyterian Support Central and its Family Works services for decades, others for just a few weeks or months. Yet each and every one of them shows a commitment to supporting people and communities in need.
Who are these people?
These are the members, volunteers, supporters, agencies, parishes, community groups and businesses that walk alongside us to make a difference in people’s lives.
Without you and your shared vision and values, our communities would struggle. Of course there are too many of you to name individually. But on behalf of all of the people we work with in the community and the team at Family Works Central, we thank you.
