Message from the Director

By Lucy Summers | Posted: Tuesday May 29, 2018

Welcome to our Winter 2018 newsletter!

We hope you are keeping warm and cosy this season – many of the families we work with find this time of year the most difficult and often forgo many of the basics to ensure their children have clothes, shoes and enough food to keep them warm. Inside the Winter 2018 edition of our newsletter you will find ideas about how you can help Otago families.

You will also read about Hannah* who has flourished as a parent of two young boys after working with Sue from our Family Start programme in North Otago. She now feels more confident and really valued the guidance and practical advice that Sue was able to offer her.

Family Start provides support to vulnerable pregnant mums or parents of babies and is focused on the health, education, safety and development of the child. The programme is free for parents and is available across Otago – help us keep it free by making an online donation.

Yours sincerely,

Nicola Taylor
