This free, volunteer-based service is open to whānau with tamariki under five, who would benefit from some extra support. The service provides practical support in your home with things like vacuuming, dishes, laundry, general cleaning and tidying over a six-week period. You can self-refer, or be referred by your Plunket nurse, WellChild provider, or another support organisation.

The home help service helps lighten the load for parents navigating difficult times. If you think your family could benefit from receiving home help, we would love to hear from you.

The service is currently available from Milton to Waikouaiti.
