Everyday Essentials

Our mahi provides equitable solutions and access to resources for whānau to work, care for their children, keep their homes warm and recover from natural disasters, family harm, illness, and injury.

Alongside our programmes we receive referrals from over 145 Community Partners around the country for families in need. Our Community Partners include the New Zealand Police, Iwi organisations, Te Whatu Ora, Oranga Tamariki, NGOs, social services, schools and early childhood education centres.

Our Community Hub holds a food bank, toiletries, new clothing, pyjamas, baby items (cots, carseats, bassinets), nappies, books and toys to support families referred to this service. Once referrals have been received, our team responds within a day, providing a bespoke support solution that fills the gap in each family's needs.

Thanks to the support of our community, business community and Nautica Shipping and Logistics we're able to support whānau all around the country with the everyday essentials needed to thrive.

"KC is so generous. It's honestly the best community organisation I've come across for helping our whānau with practical needs. Not only does it help them with the essentials to keep fed and warm, they give tamariki joy and the possibility of enjoying items they would not be able to afford".

“KC operates without judgement and just always asks “how can we help?”. I have worked with so many agencies, but KC stands out amongst all. What makes you unique is the quality of service, love and compassion that comes out of you guys. You always help families back on their feet".
