Child Cancer Foundation

Cancer Network Group Service


8:30 AM to 5:00 PM.


Child Cancer Foundation supports children with cancer and their families. We are a National Organisation that provides support from the time of a child’s diagnosis, through their treatment and subsequent transition back into the community.

Every week in New Zealand three families are told their child has cancer. By providing a stength based support model  families will build resilience to enable them to stay strong throught the time of their childs treatment and beyond.  This  is provided by a dedicated Family Support Coordinator who will assist with emotional, practical and short term financial support due to the impact of a cancer diagnosis. The Foundation reconises the importance of peer to peer support and this is provided by Connect Groups which is a nationwide parent network.

Child Cancer Foundation is a registered charity that receives no subsidy from Government. It is governed by a Board and comprises of volunteer support groups.  There are Family Places in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch.  These facilities offer a place for families to access while also serving as office space for staff in these regions.  We have leased office spaces in other locations throughout New Zealand.
