Ways we help

Our parenting service encompasses our three child focused programmes;

Live-in is a residential parenting program for parents with pēpi and tamariki on the edge of care.  Our programme runs 365 days per year and is staffed 24/7 by our expert team of social workers and whānau support team. With a focus on intervention in the first 1000 days of a baby’s life, we provide assessments and support services to families referred via Oranga Tamariki, social services, doctors, midwives, birthing units and the community.

Link provides a 6-to-8-week parenting assessment in the community for those with children on the edge of care. It includes hands-on coaching session for parents to learn how to keep their children safe, and nurture their potential.

Learn is a parenting education initiative for parents/caregivers who want to learn to identify needs in their children and implement strategies to create a calmer, more strength-based household. Our programme runs weekly each term and welcomes all parents who wish to build on their parenting skills.
