Social partnerships

We work closely with other agencies and programmes to ensure we’re delivering Kiwi families the support they need, including Oranga Tamariki and the Ministry of Education. Regionally, we work with a number of non-government organisations to deliver responsive, needs-focused support to the communities we work in.


The Sarah Lilli Fund

We are proud to support the Sarah Lilli Fund, a charitable initiative that provides hope and assistance to children in need. There are more than 250,000 children in New Zealand living below the poverty line, whose families struggle to provide even simple daily necessities. For these children, special treats and opportunities for enrichment are few and far between. The Sarah Lilli fund aims to change that.

Corporate partnerships

If you’re a business owner or CEO who’s looking for ways to do more for the community, consider partnering with Barnardos NZ.

We believe every corporate partnership should be unique and mutually beneficial. And we understand that businesses need to balance the needs of their shareholders, customers and employees with their desire to contribute to their community. That’s why we sit down with any prospective partner to chat through how they’d like to help us, what they’d like to get from the partnership and how long they’d like it to last.


Possible benefits

Depending on the sort of partner relationship you’re looking for, you could benefit from:

  • Marketplace recognition — In a market saturated with both products and consumers, standing up and declaring your interest in helping your local community will help set you apart from your competitors.

  • Positive brand association  — By partnering with Barnardos, you’re aligning yourself with over 100 years of respected charitable work for children.

  • Employee engagement  — If you’re looking for ways to involve your staff in your charitable goals, we can offer exciting volunteering and fundraising opportunities to help build morale and encourage teamwork.

  • Knowing you’re making a difference — As a Barnardos corporate partner, we will keep you up to date with the latest industry developments and let you know exactly what sort of difference your valued support is making.
