#CreateChange Give Now

banner-v1-1

Kia ora Whānau,

We believe in creating safe spaces for friends, family and survivors. We don’t want this to change over the Christmas period. Please support us to support those who need it most.

This time is often stressful for many, and the prevalence of alcohol can often lead to unsafe situations. We want everyone to remain safe throughout this time – and this campaign serves to remind friends and family of ways they can support survivors by creating safer spaces for them.

You can donate on our campaign page here or check out our donate now page for other ways to give. Your support means the world to us and survivors, their families and others who support them in times of crisis. Thank you.

P.s. you can also help by printing out our posters and putting them up at your workplace, community centre, local cafe to help us spread the word of hope and change for survivors.

Fundraising gig @ Meow

We are holding a fundraising gig on Thursday, the 19th May at Meow.

Come and have a boogie, a beverage and support a great cause! Proceeds go toward keeping our services running, so we can continue to support survivors & their whānau.
