Keep doing your good work. 

The Sutherland Self Help Trust was established in 1962 to support New Zealand Charities in their community initiatives. We believe in empowering local people to create positive change in their communities. 

The 2020 Initiative

This year’s funding initiative is for organisations which;

assist young people with long term health conditions including physical, mental and intellectual disabilities. 

We’re funding organisations which support teens in the smooth transition through to adulthood.

Young people with long term health conditions are more likely to suffer from low self-esteem, have gaps in their education, employment and relationship experiences, have fewer protective factors and greater risk behaviours. 

If your organisation has a project that may assist young people with long term health conditions, please apply.

Check your eligibility

  • Are you a registered charity?
  • Do you work with young people?
  • Are you working on a project to assist young people with long term health conditions? (Physical, mental or intellectual disabilities)
  • Is this funding for buildings, equipment &/or other capital?

We have BIG NEWS. We have been quietly working away on a very special project to build two new homes at Hohepa on Barrington Street!

We are so excited to share that we have already received an incredible donation of $500,000 from the The Sutherland Self Help Trust!!! We are so grateful for their support over the years and for this amazingly generous gift towards our new homes.
