Information for agencies  

Families often need support from several different organisations. Strengthening Families is an established process where multiple organisations come together with a family/whānau to plan and organise services.

Strengthening Families can be used by any family/whānau in Aotearoa New Zealand:

  • with a child, children or young person(s) in their care
  • who needs help from more than one agency.

The process is free and 100% voluntary. It builds on a family's strengths and dreams.

Do you know of a family/whānau in need?

If you personally know a family/whānau who could benefit from Strengthening Families, it is easy and quick to link them in.

You can:

a) encourage a family/ whānau member to ask an agency they're working with to refer them

b) suggest they get in touch with a local Strengthening Families coordinator
