Family Fun Days

Every year from November to December Family Fun Days are held all around New Zealand. Family Fun Days are local community events funded by local businesses. They are a great day out for children in care, joined by other deserving children who have had a tough start to life and biological children of foster and whānau caregivers. This encourages everyone to get together with their families for an exciting fun time together in a safe environment.

In 2022 there were 31 Family Fun Days spread throughout Aotearoa.

A huge thank you to the local businesses who sponsored these events, and to our volunteers for ensuring everything ran smoothly.

The feedback from foster and whānau caregivers has been fantastic – they say they love these parties because they don’t normally have time to organise anything. Family Fun Days give them the opportunity to simply ENJOY time with their children.

Check out what some of our amazing caregivers had to say about this year’s events:

“Took my grandchildren to a lovley day at Massey Park pools in Papakura.  The kids had so much fun.  Thank you for a lovley [sic] afternoon.” 

“The kiddies and myself really enjoyed our time together at the Christmas pool party, it was lovely to get out of the house and have some fun. Thank you so much.”

Thank you Caring for Families Aotearoa for making this whanau day possible for us here in Whangarei, our two tamariki totally enjoyed themselves. Nga mihi”
