Surrogate Grandparents New Zealand Charitable Trust

We work to connect families with older people - it may be that the grandparents don’t live nearby or for whatever reason families don’t have the amount of contact with their grandparents that they would like. The arrangement is incredibly beneficial - families gain loving support and older people feel a sense of purpose and belonging from the relationship.

Available Roles:

Regional Coordinator/Community Connector (Auckland South)

We are looking for Regional Community Coordinators for our small but growing organisation that connects families and grandparents for long lasting friendships and family bonds, and we need you to help us continue to grow. We have had some amazing success.

Volunteer Grand-friends needed for awesome Kiwi kids!

We are on the hunt for awesome Grand-friends who would like to support a local family and their children, as an older mentor but also as an extended family member. We welcome applications from all over Auckland - we will find a family for you!
