About Home and Family Society Christchurch
The charity has been in Christchurch for over 120 years. Originally known as ‘The Society for the Protection of Women and Children’, it has consistently adapted to meet the needs of the community, while working closely with children and families affected by family violence and poverty.
Today we provide a parenting programme, which helps keep families together by giving parents skills in safe, effective and nurturing parenting. It is a residential programme which runs 24/7, 365 days a year and typically families stay for two months, although there is no time limit. Very often we work with families where out of home placements are being considered for the children.
We also offer counselling for all ages, but specialise in work with children, offering play therapy for children as young as three. 57% of our referrals are for children and youth.
