Napier Family Centre is committed to helping families in need - but we need your support to make it happen!

Hawke's Bay


Now more than ever Napier Family Centre needs your support to reach vulnerable children and families in our communities affected by COVID-19.

Napier Family Centre provides services to over 2500 families a year in social work, counselling, budgeting, education and parenting programmes and early childhood services.

As the community emerges from isolation, we are concerned for our vulnerable children living in poverty and where stress and hardship has tipped people’s relationships over the edge. We are worried about how much debt will be weighing on families using credit cards or high risk loans to meet bills.

As we saw following the last lockdown, we will see more demand on our services in the coming months and the gap between what we have and what our community needs is going to increase.


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. Due to increased demand and our inability to fundraise through our normal ways we estimate Napier Family Centre needs to raise $150,000 to reach and support those affected by COVID-19 in Hawke's Bay.

Every donation be it $15 or $500 is so important and could be the difference between whether or not we can say, "yes we can help".

About us
