Providing a safe and healthy start for all babies
Nurturing Families is a not for profit charity that provides material aid for families struggling to provide for their children. We work closely alongside the NZ Police, Family Success Matters, ATWC, Family Start, midwives, and other organisations to provide those in hardship with the basic essentials. Nurturing Families helps roughly 4,000 children per year with this number hugely growing.
Nurturing Families can provide assistance for families in crisis with items from nappies and wipes, clothing and baby food to cots, car seats, prams, school bags and everything in between!
Nurturing Families has now grown into an organisation that is servicing Auckland, Taranaki and most recently Hamilton.
We are incredibly humbled to announce that Tayla has been named as 1 of 100 Kiwibank local hero's across the country. This recognises kiwis who have made it into the top 100 across the award category for the New Zealander of the year awards.
We would love to extend thanks to everyone involved with this journey because although it starts with a moment and in this case one person, it continues with dedication, commitment, drive and love from hundreds and hundreds of people.
