Family Works is a family-focused social service agency.
We support and empower children, teens, families, whānau and communities to thrive and reach their full potential.
Family Works Central’s vision is for Aotearoa New Zealand to be the best place in the world to grow up –
a place where all children are safe, families and whānau are strong and communities are connected.
Everyone’s circumstances are different. Your background, your support networks and your future is different to that of your neighbour. But we support all families, especially those facing challenges such as parenting, separation, relationship difficulties, grief and loss, poverty, abuse, and violence. During these times we can walk alongside you and your family to help you make positive changes. We work with you to use the strengths and resources you already have.
At Family Works we take a whole-of-family approach that builds on the skills and strengths of the individual and their family, whānau and community relationships.
Our support and interventions are tailored and targeted to ensure we’re working in a way that is right for the family, whānau and their specific circumstances. We know that by providing this seamless service at the right level and the right time, outcomes for families are improved regardless of their problems, and individuals become more resilient and better equipped for the future.
