Well it is slowly starting to warm up and it is officially SPRING.  Only 17 weeks till Christmas, wow!

Our Regional Hui was a huge success with great numbers and fabulous speakers.  We have had great feedback on the event and I hope all that attended got something out of it and also enjoyed all the donated goodies to take home with them.


A HUGE thank you to both Western Gas (Z West Auckland/Rodney) for sponsoring the event and the Henderson/Massey Local Board for their grant to make the event possible.  Also to both the West and North Shore Associations for stepping up and helping on the day with registrations and MC for the event.

Our conference this year will be held in Christchurch on 28–29th September 2017. It will again be an amazing event.  Make sure you get in and book fast. Go to our website for more information –  Early-bird registrations has closed.

October Snippets

The last week of September is going to be a very busy one for us, as we will be at our National Conference learning lots and meeting many caregivers.  Unfortunately this means that we won’t be able to get our October Snippets out to you on 1 October.  Instead we will share some learning from conference with you in the second week of October.
