COVID-19 Update


An update on Cholmondeley Children's Centre service during this COVID-19 lockdown

What is Cholmondeley doing?

To all our Canterbury families and supporters we are thinking of you during this challenging lockdown period. All of us here at Cholmondeley want you to know that despite our physical doors being closed for now, we remain very much open.

Our committed team here at Cholmondeley have pulled together some important supports for you during this time with new online resources and calls into whanau happening daily.

Cholmondeley continue to be there for those requiring support in a crisis or times of stress. We have a private Facebook Group for whanau filled with useful resources and contact with staff. If you have not received a text invite to this page already, please go to Facebook and private message our team and they will link you in.

Cholmondeley is working closely with Oranga Tamariki and other agencies and we are committed to returning to our normal full services just as soon as we are able to. Like you, we want to get through this lockdown period in good health and ready for the challenges ahead.

How can you help Cholmondeley help families at this time?

Given we cannot mobilise volunteers or take your donations of goods during this lockdown period, every dollar of financial support can be used immediately to sustain Cholmondeley and our ability to serve and engage Canterbury families.

Thank you for your support Canterbury!

Arron Perriam

Chief Executive
