Anglican Family Care’s mission is to work together with Otago whānau to make change that inspires hope for a better future through strong, connected and thriving whānau and tamariki, and by observing and living by the kaupapa of te Tiriti o Waitangi. We have been providing social services in Otago for over fifty years through:
Free, professional social work support to Otago tamariki and their whānau,
Visiting families at home and working with parents to ensure the safety, health, and wellbeing of their children,
Offering counselling to parents and play therapy to children and adults.
Anglican Family Care embraces the principles of te Tiriti o Waitangi and aspires to work proficiently across Te Ao Māori and Te Ao Huruhuri in all aspects of our work.
We are looking for a volunteer board member to join our skills-based board.
