People Helping People

People Helping People is our flagship magazine, published twice a year. It captures stories about the people we help as they deal with often complex challenges including anxiety, grief, loss, anger and other traumatic events. The magazine also shines a light on older people/kaumātua who are at risk of social isolation and loneliness.
