Our social workers can visit you in your home to talk about your situation. They can then work with you to plan and make changes that will improve your life and that of your family.
We receive various donations of items in new or very good, clean condition. These donations include household goods, clothing, books and toys that we then provide to families.
We have a library of books including a broad range of subjects such as parenting, child development and coping with grief. We also have beautiful story books for children. Our library is in our office at Christchurch Community House, 301 Tuam Street.
We send newsletters to all our registered families at the start of each school term. The newsletters include articles, event details, parenting tips, recipes and competitions for children. We also produce an update for our funders and supporters to keep them informed about what we are doing.
We can support you during meetings with organisations and agencies such as Work and Income, Strengthening Families, food banks, etc.
What our families say
It feels like they are on my side, which is quite a big deal when you’re a single parent. It often doesn’t feel like much is on your side.
