Plunket is a national not-for-profit organisation, community-owned and governed. We provide a caring, professional well child and family and whānau service.
We are committed to providing universal access to services for all children and families regardless of ethnicity, location or ability to pay. This is at the heart of who we are and is essential to provide a positive environment for parents.
Plunket sees more than 90% of newborn babies in New Zealand each year. Plunket offers parenting information and support as well as developmental assessments of your child.
Our nurses provide support through home and clinic visits, mobile clinics and PlunketLine, a free telephone advice service for parents. Call 0800 933 922, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Plunket also organises parent groups, parenting education, toy libraries, drop in centres, play groups, early childhood education and education in schools – most of which are available nationwide.
