Child Advocacy NZ

Every child deserves a champion
An adult who will never give up on them
Who understands the power of connection
And insists that they become the best that they can possibly be

Dr Rita Pierson

What we do

Child Advocacy NZ‘s mission is to empower parents to become champions for their child through education.

I can share my knowledge of the special education sector with parents and those working with parents to enable them to navigate the system and break down barriers.

No child should face barriers when attending our schools

Parents should not have to struggle to get their child into a school

But they do

Together we can break down barriers by building a network of bridges through the power of connection
