Welcome to Home and Family's Quarterly Newsletter! 

Home and Family is an independent Christchurch based Incorporated Cociety that works with children, adults and families facing barriers to positive outcomes in their lives.

Home & Family builds safe and secure families by providing counselling and practical life skills to families and children.

This support continues for as long as the family needs it, with contact often continuing for years after families have moved on from directly accessing Home & Family’s services. The positive effects created by working with the whole family unit to empower healthy, resilient and safe families have benefits for the entire community. It provides an opportunity for inter-generational change to occur with families being able to create positive new cultures, behaviours and relationships. These results are seen not only in the lifetime of one generation, but throughout the lifeline of the entire family.

City 2 Surf

We were very fortunate to participate at City to Surf this year. We were generously sponsored by Opus International, whose staff was also taking part in the event. We express our gratitude, especially Bob Webster, who not only coordinated everything at the Opus end, but also participated at City to Surf 14 km run. This doesn’t seem to be a very unusual story, except that Bob had a major heart surgery shortly after City to Surf 2013. His grit and determination is inspiring. You can read Bob’s story here.
