Lifewise Family Services in New Lynn is seeking a compassionate, family-focused, big hearted couple or family to join our dedicated team of foster caregivers.


Sadly, many children in New Zealand cannot remain in their own homes for a variety of reasons and typically, their lives have been turned upside down by chaos, neglect, abuse, and trauma.

Lifewise Family Services strives to minimise the impact that coming into care has on children who inevitably will experience a sense of loss of family, friends, schools and their community. We are, therefore, committed to keeping brothers and sisters together as much as possible so they at least don’t lose each other.

We will rent to you a large eight bedroom family home in West Auckland to enable you to foster large sibling groups. The home is well appointed with large grounds and you would rent the property from our organisation at a substantially reduced rental as part of the agreed contract to caregive for Lifewise.

Lifewise Family Services also offer:

  • Strong induction training
  • Ongoing training and development
  • Regular peer support
  • Minimum of weekly social work support
  • 24-hour on call support and advice

We need you to help us provide a future for children where they matter, they achieve their milestones and can reach their full potential.

We would love to hear from you so contact us today:
