Working Closely with Te Puna Trust to 'Nurture Taranaki'

September 7, 2017



Proformac is working closely with Te Puna Trust to help develop the website for Nurture Taranaki. It is a great initiative and  we feel humbled to be a part of the process. We request everyone to help Nurture Taranaki and make it a great success. We would be launching the website soon so keep an eye out for more information. 


In case you missed the article about Nurture Taranaki this morning please see it below: 


Taranaki families struggling to cope with difficult circumstances and a new born baby now have somewhere to turn for help.


Nurture Taranaki is an early intervention programme that has already seen great results in Canterbury for more than 20 years operating as Early Start.TSB Community Trust has partnered with Te Puna Trust to provide the programme.


Te Puna Trust is a charitable organisation managed by the Taranaki Police Youth Development office.Nurture Taranaki encourages and supports families to provide each of their children with a positive and enjoyable childhood.


Home visits are made to families who are dealing with challenging circumstances and have a newborn first baby. The programme is offered to first time pregnant women who would benefit from long-term support, encouragement and one-one parenting education.


The scientific-based curriculum of the PIPE parenting programme that runs inside the service, is proving very interesting, fun and worthwhile for the parents who have been involved over the past year.


It is now widely accepted that the first 1000 days of a child's life are the most influential in the long-term well-being of that child and the later adult.


Nurture Taranaki addresses not only parenting but many aspects of the environment that can contribute to well-being, including home budgeting, nutrition, relationships and other factors that a parent may be curious about.Places on the programme are available in the Waitara and Bell Block areas, so referrals are now being accepted by Te Puna Trust - Nurture Taranaki, from families, schools and any support services.
