WHO ARE WE
The New Zealand Council of Christian Social Services (NZCCSS) has six foundation members: the Anglican Care Network, Baptist Union of New Zealand, Catholic Social Services, Methodist Church of New Zealand, Presbyterian Support New Zealand Inc. and the Salvation Army. NZCCSS works for a just and compassionate society in Aotearoa New Zealand. We see this as a continuation of the mission of Jesus Christ. In seeking to fulfil this mission, we are committed to giving priority to poor and vulnerable members of our society and to Te Tiriti O Waitangi
Nationally, NZCCSS membership consists of multiple social service groups working from almost 640 separate organisational sites, which collectively provide over 1,200 social service programmes throughout New Zealand. Around a third of that work is devoted to working with older people to support them through a range of community programmes, supported housing, home-based support services, aged residential care and retirement villages.
