Logo for Plunket (Whānau Āwhina) Plunket (Whānau Āwhina)

Plunket is a charity and Aotearoa’s largest support service for the health and wellbeing of tamariki under-five and their whānau. Everything we do is to support Kiwi whānau and their tamariki to thrive. In the first 1000 days we make the difference of a lifetime. Evidence shows getting things right in the first 1000 days of a child’s life will set them up for better outcomes later in life. We're proud to visit over 85% of all newborn babies in Aotearoa and support whānau and their tamariki. Our three goals are supported by our Māori Principles Healthy tamariki – We make sure every child/tamariki can be as healthy and well as they can be. Confident whānau – We build the confidence and knowledge of whānau and families across New Zealand. Connected communities – We make sure no family or whānau is left isolated, disconnected or unable to cope.
