Find out what makes us tick.

Presbyterian Support has provided social services in the upper South Island for over 100 years. We’ve come a long way since we had a handful of children’s homes in Christchurch. Our vision is for a just, compassionate and inclusive society and our mission is to support children, young people, whānau, families and older people to be safe, strong and connected.


Presbyterian Support

We’re working hard to reduce social isolation and to support better health and wellbeing for older people.

We support individuals and families to feel safe, stronger and more connected to their communities.

We work with over 7,000 individuals and families annually. See how we’re helping to create a better New Zealand for all.

Read, firsthand, the stories of people and families we have helped to overcome adversity and hardship.
