RMHC® New Zealand supports families with a child in hospital away from home.
Our programmes take care of the practical things in life so families can focus on their child staying in a hospital away from home.
In 2018, RMHC New Zealand provided more than 4,300 families across New Zealand with accommodation and support free of charge. This helps to relieve stresses like paying for a place to sleep near the hospital, organising family meals and needing a friendly ear to listen on tough days.
Simply, we give families with a hospitalised child what they need most — each other.
A great opportunity has become available for a Fundraising Assistant to join our friendly, supportive and mission focussed Fundraising team.

• Exceptional relationship management skills
