Sowers Trust fundraising event!

Sowers is holding a vintage high tea to raise much needed funding so that we can continue to provide services to youth and families in our community. Sowers provide a wrap around service for the whole family, and this is something we wish to continue for many many years to come. We would love to have your support and get to meet the friendly people helping us achieve what we do. We have tickets available online at eventbrite, just copy and paste the following link :)

Groups for 2018

Hello everyone!

We hope your Christmas went well and welcome to 2018! We are currently looking at the groups we will be running this term and taking down expressions of interest. We will be running our Fun Friends group (ages 5/6-9), Friends for Life (ages 10-12) and our My friends Youth (ages13+). All 3 of these groups look at building self-esteem and confidence as well as social skills that can help with making and maintaining friendships. We are more than happy to answer any questions about the programs :) Feel free to contact us on 09 538-0050 and ask for anyone of the Sowers team!

We look forward to hearing from you :)

Christmas and New Year hours

Hey there!

So as you know Christmas is just around the corner, and with that comes our offices closing for a short period of time. Although you can still make referrals through our website we will be closed from the 22nd of December and we will re-open on the 8th of January. 
If you are needing any support during this time please following the link below to a free counselling service that will be running over the holiday season :)

Sowers Trust Dinner & Auction Night

A long overdue thank you to all our sponsors that donated product, services or money and volunteers that helped out leading up to the auction night and of course on the night itself.
It was a heap of fun!!  We raised close to $16,000 on the night and none of this would have been possible without your support.  We are immensely grateful.  Please support those that supported us if you are able as a way of saying thank you for their generous spirit.
