Family life can be a challenge and having a baby and bringing them up is a difficult job at the best of times. For some of us this can be harder because of our own personal difficulties or our whānau situation.
Family Start is a free home visiting program focused on improving children’s development, health, learning and environment. Family Start is free for eligible whānau.
What do we do?
We visit you at home starting once a week and get to know you and your whānau.
We find out what parts of being a parent you’ve already got sorted and what you need help with. We help you get the right health care for your child and explain how your baby is growing and changing at different ages as they grow.
