This year has been difficult, especially for tamariki/children in care who have experienced trauma. Thank our caregiver members who make a difference to their lives through love, kindness, and devotion. Especially those caregivers who still have restrictions.

We are following the Governments guidance around COVID-19. For official information and updates visit www.covid19.govt.nz and www.health.govt.nz
