Parent Village is a social enterprise, created by a Kiwi family. We are committed to our vision of helping families to develop strong community connections, with the goal of fostering a positive sense of identity and belonging in children, parents and whanau. We strive to ensure families in every area of New Zealand are able to find and access their local family supports and services, so that every Kiwi family has the opportunity to thrive.
