How you help

When you fundraise for Plunket you help support the needs of families across Aotearoa. You help tamariki thrive. 

Whānau Āwhina Plunket is woven into the fabric of New Zealand communities. Founded in 1907, we were established to “help the mothers and save the babies”.   

Now, we are the largest provider of services to support the health and wellbeing of children aged up to five in Aotearoa, New Zealand. Our mahi supports our pēpi, tamariki, and their whānau to create the best possible start in life. 

Plunket is a charity and all of our community services are offered at no cost. We can't do this without you.

Every whānau is eligible for free Well Child Tamariki Ora checks which take place in homes or local Whānau Āwhina Plunket clinics and community spaces. Plunket nurses provide clinical assessments, and along with our kaiāwhina and community karitāne provide care, support and health education to whānau. 

In addition to free health and development checks for all children, Whānau Āwhina Plunket offers a 24/7 parenting helpline (PlunketLine), and a range of community services.
