A little about us

Presbyterian Support has provided social services in the upper South Island for over 115 years. We've come a long way since we had a handful of children's homes in Christchurch!

Our vision is for an equitable, compassionate and inclusive society and our mission is to enhance the mana of children, young people, whānau/families and older people to be safe, resilient and connected.

Our stories

"Harry*, a man in his sixties, has been incredibly affected by his past and experienced times of deep depression and feelings of suicide."
Letting Go to Move Forward
"Lucas* was a vibrant nine-year-old boy whose heart overflowed with love for animals and a thirst for adventure. "
A Magical Match Made in Mentoring
"At just 17 years old, Hana* had learned not to ask for much in life. Growing up in a challenging home environment with no positive role models meant she faced numerous obstacles. "
From Shy to Shining
