Help our team support whānau this Christmas

By Anglican Family Care | Posted: Tuesday November 29, 2022

$25 provides a caregiver for a child while mum is in hospital if there is no other family support

$50 pays for a whānau worker to visit a family to help them work through a child’s disruptive behaviour

$100 gives a child three play therapy sessions to help them learn to cope with the loss of a loved one

The following resources will help our social workers support parents in their parenting delivery and their child’s learning experience:

  • Developmental toys (wooden activity cubes)
  • Tactile books for babies
  • Jigsaw puzzles (peg, wooden etc)
  • Games for over 5-year-olds

Whānau Assistance

  • Toiletries for the whole whānau (body wash, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, nappies, shaving cream, disposable razors, hygiene products)
  • Supermarket vouchers (to purchase milk formula and other essentials)
  • Petrol vouchers
  • The Warehouse vouchers so families can stock up on school supplies
  • Sun protection (sunscreen, sunhats)
  • Experiences as a family
  • New or good quality children’s PJ’s (follow us on Facebook or Instagram for more ideas)

Wherever possible we do prefer brand new, but we also accept “as new” pre-loved items. If you would like to contribute or have a question, we’d love to hear from you!
