A fundrais­ing ini­tia­tive has raised more than $260,000 to go to­wards par­ent­ing cour­ses for vul­ner­a­ble fam­i­lies across New Zealand. The ini­tia­tive was a joint ven­ture be­tween the Par­ent­ing Place and TheWare­house and will al­low more than 1000 par­ents to par­tic­i­pate in a course de­signed to equip them with a range of par­ent­ing skills and help build strong fam­ily re­la­tion­ships. The Par­ent­ing Place chief ex­ec­u­tive Greg Flem­ing said the tool­box course could be lifechang­ing for par­ents. The sixweek course helps fam­i­lies fac­ing com­plex chal­lenges and helps them achieve their as­pi­ra­tions for their fam­i­lies. Funds were raised through do­na­tions in The Ware­house stores na­tion­wide.
