Birthright Palmerston North


We specialise in working with families led by one person. Birthright believes that all children have the right to be happy, secure, and loving home environment.


We understand that diversity of whanau in our communities. We believe children have a “birthright” to the same opportunities regardless of their family circumstances


For over sixty years, our organisation has worked to strengthen and enrich the lives of children and families. From our early beginnings in Hawkes Bay, we have grown into a national registered charity with affiliated organisations around New Zealand. These organisations offer a range of services.

– Nicky
