What We Do
We help create a better life for everyone
Our social services help to build safer, stronger, more connected families and communities, including supporting older people to maintain their wellbeing and positive social connections as they age.
Please note: Due to the recent change to Covid-19 Alert Level 2 in the Upper South Island region, all of our Enliven Day programmes and HomeShare services are temporarily closed. Some changes have been made to the way we are currently delivering Family Works services. Keep up to date with any changes to our services via the homepage.
Our aim is to ensure that older New Zealanders are afforded the respect they deserve as well as the opportunity to grow older with dignity.

Being socially active is a key determiner of health & wellbeing for people of all ages. Enliven can help you or a loved one to stay connected with your community.
We all have the right to age with dignity. We’ll advocate for your rights and entitlements as an older person when you seek access to local services.
Health & Wellbeing
Our Enliven Positive Ageing Services teams are here to listen and to help you. Enliven is available to support and encourage older people to live their lives to their fullest.
Memory loss help
Memory loss (cognitive impairment or dementia) affect many older people. Enliven can help support you or a loved one to live positively with memory loss.
There is no guide book to parenting. Luckily, Family Works offers a number of parenting programmes designed to help you – and your children, thrive.
Support for Young People
Things don’t always turn out as planned. If you’re a young person and things aren’t working out, Family Works and the youth coaches are here to help support you.
Support for Families
We’ll work alongside your family to help you to build healthy relationships, work through issues and become a source of safety and strength for each other.
