Help Andrew feel safe at home today

Sadly, as many as 24 per cent of New Zealand children (that’s around 260,000) live in poverty. One child under two is hospitalised every five days and on average, one child is killed every five weeks.

With your donation, we can help children cope with and recover from the effects of domestic violence. You’ll be funding lasting change through Family Works services like counselling and intensive support to restore children’s lives. Please help us by becoming a Family Works Guardian Angel … because every child deserves to feel safe in their own home.
