SUPPORTER SHOWCASE

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

Well overdue, but sadly most of the offenders will just tell the police to “add it to their tab…”🤦

Should have been along time ago. All these poor kids exposed to secondhand smoke.

Don't know where that bit of info came from - but it's years since its been in law - I was working for Police when it came in and I've been retired since 2011.

Change the charges to child abuse.

I fully support thus ruling bug thought the penalty was too low.

When Debbs Murray returned home from a trip, she noticed one of her kittens was missing. Her then-partner had thrown it out the car window and run it over. Debbs then realised one of her other kittens was limping. Her partner had broken it’s leg - a clear message of “Don’t leave me again”. This controlling behaviour is a form of psychological abuse. Like Debbs, we want to emphasize just how common animal abuse is in family violence.

New Zealand has one of the worst rates of family violence in the developed world. The connection between family violence and animal abuse has been clearly shown in criminal court cases in the past. Remember that family violence, whether its linked to animal abuse or not, is never ok.

What a scumbag

Awesome stuff Guys!!

If you suspect a child is being sexually abused there are behavioural signs you can look for;

 - Overly sexual language and behaviour 
 - Advanced sexual knowledge 
 - Confused boundaries around physical touch 

If you have noticed any of these behavioural signs in the child, act fast and do NOT ignore it. There are plenty of helplines on our directory you can call for advice or guidance about protecting the child from further harm. https://pmgt.org.nz/directory/
