A Message From Jo

Welcome to this autumn edition of People, and warm thanks to all who donated time, gifts, food or money over the Christmas season, as your kindness brought hope and joy to hundreds of families.

There is much ongoing need too and as we look to the future, we want to ensure that Presbyterian Support Otago is a strong and sustainable provider of all its services.

We are working very hard with the resources we have, but there are challenges yet to be met. Despite some changes in government policy, there are still significant numbers of children living in poverty, and charitable organisations like PSO are positioned to make a difference in the lives of those who are suffering the most. We know our local communities and their needs and can work alongside them to bring opportunity and growth to their lives.

I want you to know that we are focused on stewarding what we have already, and on maximising the impact of our resources for those in need from the cradle to the grave.

Chief Executive
