Family Care NZ ... Just for you!

Subscribe to Family Care NZ!

Published quarterly, Family Care is available from non profits, doctors' surgeries, hospital waiting rooms, and many other places ... or you can have it delivered to your home by phoning (0800) 777 797, emailing or signing up online.

Until now, with support from our major sponsors, we have been able to keep the magazine free for readers, but due to rising costs, we need your help. 

We are now asking new subscribers if they can assist by paying a $20 annual subscription to support the magazine, your $20 covers four issues of Family Care.

We are also asking existing readers who can afford to do so to contribute a $20 annual subscription, to help cover the cost of printing and posting your magazine.

Subscriptions can be paid by credit card, or cheque (please make cheques payable to Family Care).

We understand that many readers cannot afford to pay a subscription - please don't worry if this is the case, as we are raising funds to keep your magazine free.

Please phone Sara Rogers on 0800 777 797 or email for further information.

Organisations can order bulk copies to distribute to families in their networks (please assist with a post and courier koha of $2 a copy). 

We thank our cornerstone partners for making Family Care possible:  ACC, Bupa Care Services, and Careerforce.
