Family Works: Who we are

Family Works 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 whanau are strong and communities are connected.


At Family Works we take a whole-of-family, strength-based approach. That means we build on the strengths individuals, families and whānau already have, and tailor our services and approach to meet the needs of each child, young person, parent and family.

Family Works staff are not just qualified and highly trained in their fields; they’re respectful, approachable and non-judgemental. The Family Works team understands the importance of building meaningful and trusting relationships.
