Welfare and foodbank

Our Family Works social workers provide support to families throughout Otago. They are based in:

  • Alexandra
  • Dunedin
  • Oamaru
  • Ranfurly
  • Wanaka

They can work with you to navigate government and community services that may be available to you and your family. They can also assist with advice on suitable Family Works services and programmes.

Family Works also manages an emergency foodbank in Dunedin at 407 Moray Place. The foodbank is open Monday to Friday, 8.30am-5pm.

Donating items to our foodbank

If you would like to contribute fresh, canned or packaged food items to our Dunedin foodbank please drop in, during business hours, to our Family Works office at 407 Moray Place.  We welcome your gift.
