During this time, Napier Family Centre is even more committed to helping families in need - we need your support to make it happen!


Before the COVID-19 lockdown, we were helping over 2500 families a year though our services in budgeting, social work, counselling, education programmes and early childhood service.


• More people in our community will lose jobs

• More people in our community will be unable to afford basic needs (food, power, rent)

• More children in our community will suffer in poverty

• More stress and pressures will cause mental health issues for vulnerable people

• Isolation and withdrawing from community participation will increase (we need to stay connected even though we must observe distance)

This in turn will see more demand on our services in the coming months and the gap between any funding we get and what our community actually needs is going to increase.


Napier Family Centre has been here to support our community for over 35 years. Since 1983 our services have continuously changed and adapted as the needs of our community did and in 2020 it is no different. COVID-19 presents a new set of challenges for all New Zealanders but our commitment to supporting vulnerable people in our community remains un-waivered.

We estimate Napier Family Centre needs to raise $150,000 to reach and support those affected by COVID-19. Therefore we are asking for your help to make it possible for us to continue serving our community for another 35 years.


While we are all missing life’s little luxuries we hope you can support us by donating the cost of a day's coffee, or even a week's worth, a month's? Every little bit helps and the more we raise the more people we can support!

Napier Family Centre provides around 5,500 hours of essential ECE and social services per week. Despite the lockdown and the impact of COVID-19 on our people and economy we are committed to continue to be there for people in need.

About us

Serving the communities of Hawke's Bay since 1983, Napier Family Centre works with around 2500 families every year providing essential social services in social work, budgeting, counselling, education and ECE.

Use of funds

All the funds received will used to ensure we can commit with confidence to the services and programmes our community will need in the coming months. The more we get, the people and families we can help! Thank you.
