Right now, vulnerable North Canterbury families are struggling with the impact of COVID-19. Help us to help them get through this.


A message from our Manager, Deirdre Ryan:

No-one can be sure exactly what will be needed in the weeks and months ahead but I promise you, we will respond to the needs of our most vulnerable families; families like Alex (not her real name) and her partner, with a youngster at Leithfield school. In tears after her partner lost his job, Alex told me “I don’t know what we’re going to do”. Community Wellbeing rallied, delivering boxes of food to Alex and several other families from Leithfield and Amberley Schools. “Some of our families are already doing it tough”, said Sharon Marsh, Principal of Leithfield School, “COVID-19 is pushing them to breaking point. I hate to think how these families will survive this crisis without Community Wellbeing.”

Community Wellbeing North Canterbury Trust has over 30 years experience responding to the needs of families in North Canterbury. We’re your Trust, distinctly local, providing free social and community services throughout Waimakariri and the Hurunui.

Supporting vulnerable families with urgent food parcels is just one of the ways we’re helping our community through this crisis. Our team are all on deck, responding to the escalating needs of our community. But we can’t do it without YOU.

Help us meet the needs of North Canterbury’s most vulnerable families.
