Family Works – Whangarei

Our Vision

Family Works Northern builds safe, strong and connected families.

Our social services help children, young people and families feel supported and included in their communities.

We’re part of Presbyterian Support Northern, a charitable social services provider that’s been around for over 130 years.

Like them, we’re passionate about strengthening New Zealand families as they face life’s challenges. Through our services, we aim for to help build strong healthy families, help children/tamariki make good choices, parents/mātua build on their strengths and help build a strong health community for keeping children safe.

Our goals are to
  • overcome the effects of abuse
  • resolve challenging behaviour
  • strengthen family relationships
  • help children and young people make positive changes
  • increase confidence and self-esteem
  • encourage families to develop their own resources
  • advocate to prevent family violence
  • enable children and their families to connect with their communities
