Nau mai, haere mai and welcome to Family Success Matters (formerly Family Start Manukau). We provide home-based support to families who want to give their children a good go at life; to be healthy, successful and fun to be with.

Our mission: We support children and Whānau with complex needs to have a healthy and safe home, have their everyday needs met, be valued by and engaged with, their community; and achieve their future aspirations.

We provide the Family Start programme which is for high needs families who really want to do better than they are currently. We receive referrals for parents who have a child under 1 year or who are pregnant. We can work intensively long term, till the child starts school. We will accept older toddlers in exceptional circumstances. We provide the Family Start programme for families in the following areas: Botany-Clevedon, Howick, Dannemore, Manurewa, Clendon, East Tāmaki, Flat Bush, ÅŒtara, Pakuranga, Papatoetoe, Beachlands, Kaiaua, and Franklin.

There are other Family Start programmes in Māngere, Papakura, Auckland City & Waitakere, run by other agencies.

We will also work with high needs fathers who want to change for their family’s sake. Fathers for Families programme is available and is home-based and progresses to group work overtime.

Family Success Matters employs lead professionals for the Aatea service (formerly Children’s Team). This group provides support to older high needs children.
