Family Start

We believe that all parents want to be good parents and Family Start will support you to be the best you can be.

Family Start believes the first years of a child's life are important. This programme provides a home-based service that is family focused and child centered. It is sensitive to the needs and values of whanau, hapu and iwi. Our highly skilled team will give guidance to improve the health, welfare, education and general well-being of tamariki. They will assist you and your whanau  to set achievable goals, supply you with the appropriate early childhood information and deliver the Born to Learn programme which enhances parenting skills.

The service is available to all ethnic groups and aims to give babies the best possible start in life.

Referrals can be made through your Midwife, General Practitioner or Well Child provider.
