How can you help?
We rely on volunteers to help us run groups, fundraise and provide governance on our board.
Board members: We are looking for people with 4 hours a month to help govern and advise the Trust.
Group childcare volunteers: Help out weekly or fortnightly at one of our groups helping to look after babies and toddlers while our parents have a hot drink and a chat.
Peer supporters: Talk to us about becoming a peer supporter if you have had your own journey with perinatal mental illness and would like to help support others through their journey. Listen to and support parents at our groups, online or via telephone.
Fundraising: Challenge yourself, host an event, shake a bucket, give up a habit for a month; think about how you could best use your own skills, talents, and networks to raise funds to support the mental wellbeing of parents. Use our JustGiving page to set up your own fundraising page for your event and to collect donations.
Your donations go directly to supporting the mental wellbeing of parents struggling during the perinatal period. All donations over $5 are tax deductible. Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you require a receipt.
Online Banking: Perinatal Wellbeing Canterbury Trust, 38-9010-0128228-00. Please put “Donation” as a reference.
Givealittle: You can donate via the Givealittle website. A receipt will automatically be emailed to you.
JustGiving: You can donate via our JustGiving page.
Thank you to all those organisations and individuals who have supported the work of Perinatal Wellbeing Canterbury in the past, and for those who continue to support us. Without your generosity we would be unable to continue to provide our modest, but much needed services to parents in our community.
