Thank you to our major sponsors for their continued support

Children need two loving and supportive parents whether the family all lives under the same roof or not.

Kidz Need Dadz' mission is to help New Zealand men be the best fathers they can be. Through education and support we help dads to play an active part in their children's lives. As well as supporting fathers, we educate the broader community about the need for dads to be involved with their children.

We can help with parenting, relationship separation, assistance with legal advice and mentoring, information on health and wellbeing services for men, and events for dads to meet up.
