"Strengthening Communities - Creating Hope."

GWT Purpose

Welcome to the Good Works Trust, the charitable trust committed doing good works – just like our name says! – on the North Shore of Auckland.

Our pro-active group of trustees are committed to five values – integrity, inclusion, generosity, empowerment and meaningful partnerships – in outworking our vision.

We hope you enjoy reading about some of our endeavours and invite you to contact us if you’d like to know more, or to become involved.

What we do

Here's some of the things we do in the community

Foodbank

Good Works Trust provides food parcels, delivered by volunteers, to families who need a rapid response to an immediate need, often caused by an unexpected family illness, a delay in benefits or a family commitment on the death of a family member.

Christmas Food Shop

For many of our disadvantaged families, Christmas is a time of stress and disillusionment. The annual Christmas shop is where food and children’s presents are purchased and donated to a shop-type environment where for a small payment a family can shop and choose what they want for Christmas.

If you want to be a part of the 2017 Christmas Shop send us a message, or check out our Givealittle page givealittle.co.nz/cause/christmasshop2017

Parakai family day

The Parakai family day offers a holiday environment and a fun family day out, a new opportunity for many of our families who rarely can carry out an activity where the whole family is involved.

More community initiatives
