Partnering with Plunket

The wellbeing of children and whānau is at the heart of everything we do here at Plunket. Together, our Partner Whānau shares that care and focus.

Each partnership we have is customised to meet the business needs and objectives of both organisations, while working in tandem to support children and whānau in the early years.

The opportunities of being a Whānau Āwhina Plunket partner include:

  • Connecting with your customers and staff through mutual values. A partnership with Plunket is a clear statement that you share the same aroha for the health and wellbeing of tamariki and whānau.
  • Elevating your brand by aligning with Plunket’s. Our profile as Aotearoa New Zealand’s largest provider of services to under-fives means we’re also key, visible advocates for tamariki and their whānau - and have been for over 116 years.
