The PWSA(NZ) is a support network for people with PWS, their families and carers. We aim to improve the quality of life for all persons with PWS in New Zealand and their families.

Our main services are advocacy, education and support. We advocate on behalf of people with PWS, provide information and resources to families, carers, schools, service providers and other professionals, maintain a support network and bring families together by hosting events.

Here are some examples of how your donations can help:

* As PWS is a rare syndrome, families are geographically isolated and have little opportunity to meet each other. Your funds might contribute towards bringing families to a family camp, a youth weekend or a young families weekend for parents of newly diagnosed children.

* Adult with PWS are often keen to engage more with their community and the wider PWS community. Your funds could help us to facilitate this.

* Your funds may help us to offer more training courses and support workshops, or invite an expert, specialist speaker to present at a seminar.

* As times change and more is discovered about PWS, information resources need to be updated. Your funds might contribute towards new library resources and publications.

* We are a member of the International PWS Organisation ( Your funds might help us disseminate information in regard to new international guidelines on the best practice and management of the syndrome.
