Our Partners

Fostering Kids thanks everyone who makes our work possible.

We couldn’t do what we do without you!

We are particularly grateful the following partners:

Oranga Tamariki, Ministry for Vulnerable Children (formerly Child, Youth & Family Services)

In partnership with Oranga Tamariki we celebrate wonderful caregivers receiving Excellence in Foster Care Awards, with the support of our Patron.

Support from Oranga Tamariki is ongoing, but not exclusive. Fostering Kids NZ relies on funding from the public, trusts and foundations to ensure we can give ongoing support to as many foster and permanent caregivers as possible.

L’Oreal New Zealand  

Since 2007 L’Oreal New Zealand has supported Fostering Kids NZ.

Each year L’Oreal explores new ways of helping. Annually, inspiration and motivation is provided for 50 young people transitioning from care to independence. This ‘Explore Your Future’ event is growing year by year and has gained incredible support from high profile celebrities keen to be involved.

As part of their annual L’Oreal Citizen Day, 150 L’Oreal staff donned work gloves for a massive one-day makeover to help revitalise The Dingwall Trust in Papatoetoe.  L’Oreal also gifts products for foster families to enjoy. These are handed out at trainings and local events to our members.

Elevate 

Over 200 children receive new bicycles each year through Elevate Events. A huge thank you to Elevate and all of those who have supported this fantastic event.
