Ngā mihi nui – thank you

We are thankful to the Lottery Community fund for a grant towards our Māori development leader role. We believe in the importance of this role in helping us to develop and guide our work with Māori whānau. 

We also appreciate a grant from Frimley Foundation for our counselling service operational expenses and from the Ministry of Social Development to add an additional financial mentor to our staff.  

Waiting lists for counselling and financial mentoring are evidence of the great need amongst families for assistance with mental health and making ends meet.

And lastly, we’d also like to mention Christian Savings and their Charitable Term Deposits product, which Iosis has benefited from. Christian Savings offers Charitable Term Deposits. You decide the term you’d like to invest for, from one to five years, and the interest earned on the deposit is donated to your nominated charity by Christian Savings. We encourage you to contact Christian Savings if you are interested to know more.
