Kids First Whanau Centre offers a five-room residential space for women who are either pregnant or with children up to 12 months of age. Our priority is the wellbeing, care, and protection of mothers and their children.
We provide support across three areas, residential in-house support, post-residential support, and support in the community.
Kids First Whanau Centre is a space where mums can be with other mums, sharing experiences and challenges, seeing change and growth in each other. We provide a safe space for children and mums, where there is acceptance without judgement and where each persons' uniqueness and experiences are respected.
