Plunket NZ

As Aotearoa's largest support service for the health and wellbeing of tamariki under 5's and their whānau, Plunket has been the PMGT's partner on all matters relating to child safety and wellbeing for twenty five years.

Together we have conducted national campaigns focusing on positive parenting, informing the public on matters relating child safety, and funding a wide range of community support organizations and services.  Sincerely, thank you for your support - the team at the NZPMGT.

COMMUNITY GRANTS

Your donation will help us to continue to offer practical help to children and their families in need of some human kindness and community support. This we do by providing items of warmth and care through social service and community professionals, who make requests on their clients’ behalf. These include police, public health nurses, social and community workers.

Donations help support the day to day running of the charity and allow us to purchase blankets and other items of warmth and comfort. In addition, your donation allows us to put together family care packs to the Northshore and Auckland hospital’s ICUs (intensive care departments).

We want members of the community to not only feel supported and warm, but importantly valued, and your donation carries this message of valuing others. Together we have created a community of kindness.

Kind regards,
Bernie Harfleet

Men, too, are able to obtain a protection order against a violent partner, whether the partner is male or female. Abuse within any relationship is often controlling. It may cause physical, sexual or psychological damage or cause victims to live in continual fear. You may be feeling humiliated, afraid or even guilty about speaking up but it is important to know that there are support systems available for men to speak and be heard. Our directory has helplines under the heading “Just for men” specifically for male victims of domestic abuse and violence. https://pmgt.org.nz/directory/

The problem is lots still believe that domestic violence only happens to women and is perpetrated only by men. Until society stops accepting women slapping men domestic abuse of men will continue being under reported for fear of being humiliated by all that should be supporting them.

The earlier drug abuse is begun, the greater the likelihood of the abuser developing a Substance Use Disorder later in life. A teen experimenting with prescription Opioids at age 16 can easily develop a tolerance. A tolerance often leads to a dependency within as little as a few weeks or months. Once the teen has developed a dependency, they may develop a full-blown Substance Use Disorder by the age of 20. 

If you would like to talk to a professional about your substance abuse or being a support person for someone suffering from drug abuse, please visit the directory on our website:

6. Avoid HR and senior management.

Stories of sideline abuse are unfortunately not uncommon across Aotearoa. This leads to children losing confidence in their skills and giving up sport to avoid becoming the target of the next person who cant control their behaviour. We must strive for an encouraging sports youth sideline culture to create a safe environment for our young athletes.
