Regional Events

Regional Events are a wonderful way for caregivers to relax, have fun and meet others who are walking the same path.

They are run by our wonderful Regional Coordinators with the help of our Regional Committee volunteers, who organise events such as coffee mornings, movies screenings, and Matariki celebrations, to name a few.

Please see below to find out about our upcoming regional events.

Matariki

Matariki is a star cluster in the sky and its arrival has a wonderful meaning; it is a time to spend with whānau (family) and friends, to reflect on the past year, and to look forward to new beginnings ahead. It is a time of remembrance, joy, and peace.

In 2023 our Regional Coordinators hosted a number of events around the motu (country) to help caregivers and tamariki celebrate this special time of year. Click the button below to see our Matariki event highlights!

Join a Regional Committee

In each region there is a Regional Committee/Panel made up of caregiver members from the region, National Office team as required, and the Regional Coordinator. The Regional Committee will approve event proposals from the Support Groups and offer assistance where necessary. They may plan/organise events for all members in their region and promote events on Facebook.
