Family Works COVID-19 response

This information was last updated at 8:55am Tuesday 24 March 2020

From 11.59pm on Wednesday 25 March 2020 New Zealand will be into COVID-19 response Level 4. Our Family Works services are classified as essential services and will remain operational in different ways.

We are committed to supporting the health, safety and well being of all of our clients, staff and their families, foster families, volunteers, and others we work with in the community therefore we would like to let you know about how we are working throughout New Zealand’s level 4 response to COVID-19.

Family Works Building

  • Unfortunately we have closed our building and will continue to work with our clients in different ways via phone and video-calling where possible until the government lifts New Zealand's level 4 status.

New referrals

  • We are still taking new referrals and enquiries via our website.

Group Programmes, Trainings and meetings 

  • We have put our group programmes and trainings on hold until further notice.

Are your head office staff working?

Our Central Office site is closed and staff will also be working from home.

On a final note, we encourage you to take care of yourselves and your family during this time.
