We are looking for awesome individuals or couples who would like to support a local family and act as a "GrandFriend". We have a waiting list of families all over NZ who would love nothing more than to connect with you.
GrandFriends is a little charity that combats big issues like isolation and loneliness.
We are the bridge that brings kiwis together from across the generations. By connecting families with GrandFriends, we provide a long lasting “people” solution to loneliness.
Using our years of experience we match like-minded GrandFriends, extending their support networks, so they can enjoy the special moments, share the load - all the while combating loneliness.
You are welcome to apply as an individual - or if you wish to apply with your partner (husband/wife/significant other) as something that you can volunteer with together - that is also very much welcome and encouraged.
