Family Support Sick Kids Advocacy

Imagine the unimaginable. Your child is diagnosed with a serious illness. Your baby is born early with serious complications. You are told your child is going to die. It’s hard isn’t it, to even think about these things. As a parent all you want for your child is to grow up healthy and happy.

But for some parents the ‘unimaginable’ is their reality.

True Colours Children’s Health Trust is there when the unimaginable happens. We are there to support and care for families as they navigate their new reality. Through counselling, nursing and education we focus on supporting the whole family build the strength, courage and resiliency they need to face the daily challenges that serious health conditions bring with them.

True Colours Children's Health Trust is a Waikato based health care organisation, funded entirely by community generosity. It exists for the sole purpose of supporting children and young people with complex serious illness, and their families. The all-encompassing approach to care combines counselling, nursing and education with a full recognition of the physical, emotional, social and spiritual contexts of health and wellbeing.

True Colours delivers support services and a continuum of care for the entire family unit, from the time of diagnosis through to cure, bereavement or on-going adjustment to living with a life-limiting illness.

This support is available throughout the greater Waikato region working closely with health professionals, schools and other community groups to promote further education and understanding of the many and complex challenges facing children, young people and their families.
