Family Works Central’s New Settlers’ Group has been designed for women who have migrated to New Zealand and may feel isolated after leaving their extended family and friends for a new life here.
The group of women, and their young children, meet every Friday morning during the school term, providing companionship and opportunities to socialise with others in a similar situation. The group also support each other and make contacts in the community.
The group is a great way to make friends, learn new skills and practice your conversational English in a safe, welcoming environment.
The New Settlers’ Group is currently operating from the Family Works Upper Hutt centre and is open to women throughout the Hutt Valley and Wellington region. Your children are also welcome. If you are looking for a similar service in another region, please contact us to discuss your needs.
Family Works Central’s New Settlers’ Group is only made possible thanks to the support and generosity of our communities and volunteers.
