Father and Child Trust #CC10885

Our Vision:
A happier, healthier and safer environment for our children/tamariki created by more balanced parenting and effective engaged fathers.

Father & Child Trust was founded in Christchurch in August 1997 by a group of dads who ‘found’ each other in Hagley Park, where their children played together. We soon realised that as ‘at-home’ and part time or solo dads, we had similar issues and wanted to support each other as parents.

By 1998, we moved into a community room and formed a trust, aiming to bring a dad perspective into existing family services and address the lack of information or support for NZ Dads. We covered issues like depression, role adjustment, partner and relationship issues, soon forming a partnership with the local Plunket PND/PNAP mothers support group.

  1. Surf Life Saving Northern Region Inc #CC21256

Northern Region is the largest of the Surf Life Saving regions in New Zealand covering Auckland to the Far North, and as far south as Raglan.

Surf Life Saving is one of the best imports we’ve ever had from Australia. It was on its long sweeping beaches and in its crashing waves that lifesaving was born in 1906. The traditions that took root there first came to the shores of Lyall Bay and New Brighton in 1910. By the end of the year, four more clubs had sprung up and started patrolling.

GIVING YOUR BABY’S CLOTHES A SECOND LIFE

We’re doing this by helping Kiwis pass on their pre-loved baby clothes and other baby essentials to families with newborns in need in Auckland. This may seem such a small thing, but every little piece of baby clothing, bedding, carseats & more that you donate, really does make a huge difference. So if you’ve got some gear that you’re thinking of passing on, here’s a massive thanks in advance from the little ones you’ll be helping.
