Founded in 1941,
the Sutherland Self Help Trust was established by the Sutherland Family, who pioneered New Zealand’s first chain of grocery stores, The Self Help Co-op.
The pioneering spirit of The Sutherland Family saw them reject traditional trading methods and opt instead for a business model that would support the community.
This included setting up The Sutherland Self Help Trust to assist registered charities in New Zealand through Grants in order to deliver services to support the community.
