It is a month of celebration for me here at Fostering Kids NZ! At the end of this month I will have been with you all for one whole year, hasn’t time flown?

I have loved every minute of it, meeting so many of you through the training days, support groups and other events and meetings I have attended and facilitated. As each month passes I hope to meet even more of you and continue to look forward to it.

Our first NZ autumn has turned into beautiful sunshine, chillier mornings and evenings, lots of trees that have WOW’d me with their beautiful red and golden sun-kissed leaves as I have driven from town to town across our region.


We have been out and about already this term, and I still have a few more opportunities for you to attend discussion sessions this month.

If you are in the Horowhenua area on 12 June, then why not book in for an evening discussion session? We will be meeting at Thompson House in Levin at 7pm, and discussing “Building Blocks to Development” for a couple of hours.

On 19 June I will be visiting Palmerston North at St Albans Church. Come and join me for the afternoon from 1pm, where we will be exploring “Keeping Memories”.

Support Groups

Have you got some news you would like to share from your support group? I would love to share with the Region in our monthly newsletter about what’s been happening/ what you’ve been doing in your support groups.  Please do not be shy and drop me a line if you want to share some news with everyone else.

Regional Committee

We now have two committee members representing the Wellington City area and Kapiti coast.

Are you living in either the Horowhenua, Manawatu or Wairarapa districts? If you are and you can spare a little bit of time each month then we would love to hear from you! Or if you would like to know a little bit more about the role, then please give me a call. I would love to hear from you.

Don’t forget you can contact me via email at: iona.wilson@nullfosteringkids.org.nz or call/text me on 027 501 0394. We also have a Private Facebook Group too, which you can join!

Ngā manaakitanga (with best wishes)
