All of our services are community-based. Our parenting programmes are provided in partnership with the Mangere East Community Centre. Our early intervention service for children with special needs and their whanau is provided in the home and in early childhood centres and Kohanga reo. We also provide professional development training.
We accept agency referrals and direct inquiries from parents and whanau members. We have found that many parents are recommended by family or friends who have used our services. All inquiries are welcome. Children with high and very high developmental needs meet our criteria for our early intervention services.
Our services are provided free to parents and whanau. We provide transport and children's groups if needed, for parents who are attending programmes.
Our dedicated team of parent educators, early intervention teachers, speech language therapists, social workers, psychologists, education support workers and childcarers are committed to sharing their skills and expertise. We use researched evidence-based models and strengths-based practice.

“I don’t know how I can show others how much the fathers programme has meant to me. It gave me hope."
"For me one of the things I learnt about myself was I needed to open up and speak about what is truly hurting inside me... And I learned to be able to trust people."
