Supporting Our Community

We work to promote positive change and educate families to achieve a holistic balance in their lives

Our Programmes

In addition to the one-on-one work our social workers do with families, there are number of programmes which are targeted to specific members of the family. These programmes complement the other work being completed with the family.

Looking for Support?

Our qualified social workers can work with you to learn new possibilities of living, to move forward with positive change, and to remove barriers to achieving goals. While they will not tell you what to do, they will help you find your own way forward.

You can self refer using the form below, give us a call or email. For professionals referring clients, please use the form below.

Programme Feedback

​"What a great day, it was so cool seeing the students enjoying themselves. I just want to acknowledge the excellent work from Rhonda. She was amazing with the students making sure all felt included, supporting the students when they needed it and just making sure everyone was having a good time. I cant speak highly enough of Rhonda and the amazing opportunities Ellv8 provide our EmployNZ students."

EmployNZ Staff - Ellav8 Programme

"Our tutor team have found these events are of great benefit to our students who would not usually be able to attend the types of events due to the home environment they are in, low self-esteem and encouraging good sometimes new healthy friendships and relationships with each other. Some of the feedback from the tutors has been."

"I've had the pleasure of meeting with Rhonda over the past several months. In all occasions, Rhonda has been very professional, but at the same time friendly, caring and willing to go the extra mile, especially in regard to meetings with my lawyers."

Tāngata Whaiora - supported by Social Worker

The children from class really benefitted from attending the Tamariki Programme. The friendships they made have been strengthened in the classroom. They have learnt how to manage tricky emotions and have shown increasing confidence in all areas. The experiences outside the classroom were something the children still talk about.

"I just want to acknowledge the hard mahi you (Maxine) do for myself and my peers. I am forever grateful for the meetings you organize for myself and others."

Tāngata Whaiora - Grandparents with Purpose

"EllaV8 is an absolutely wonderful programme. It is offered to our students who sadly don't get the opportunities and experiences that many others get. The activities really put the students out of their comfort zone and push them to do things they would never normally do. We are very grateful that FAB considers and invites Greenpark students to be part of the EllaV8. We feel extremely lucky to be part of it and we know it is something our students will remember for a long time to come."
