Anglican Trust For Women and Children

The Anglican Trust for Women and Children is one of Auckland’s major charities for women and children. It is also one of the city's oldest, with its origins stretching back to 1858.

The commitment to their founder’s vision lives on today and although ATWC no longer runs orphanages, they support up to 3000 children and their families/whanau in the Auckand region, through a range of vital programmes at home, in schools and in the community. Every programme is different but each is part of an integrated approach, sharing the same goals to protect, nurture and provide opportunities for children and young people. They aim, where possible, to reconnect families/whanau, empowering them to take control of their decision-making and to enable them to face the future with hope.

With a focus on early intervention, their services are aimed at strengthening the capacity of parents/caregivers in their parenting and care giving roles. ATWC provides emotional and practical support in the areas of parenting skills, child behaviour, relationship issues, early childhood education, abuse, neglect, family violence, separation, loss, grief, poverty and housing.

They employ professional staff, and provide high quality innovative practice, working in collaboration with other agencies and services. ATWC is run by a Board of Trustees - a distinguished group of visionary business and community leaders who willingly give their time to the charity.

The work of ATWC relies on their ability to access funding and donations for the continuation of the valuable services that they provide. By joining the 'Friends of ATWC', you will be joining them in ther work.
