The Nikau Foundation team have been working hard during lockdown level 3 and 4 to play our part in the Covid-19 community response. From providing support for charities, connecting donors and partners with local needs and activities, and giving out nearly $30,000 of grants to organisations working on the front-line.

For many of the charities we work with, the pandemic has meant a dramatic shift in the way they operate, deliver services and connect with the people they care for. We have been overwhelmed by their innovative approaches; making sure our most vulnerable are receiving the help and support they need in a practical and safe way.

Connecting with our regional volunteers, local funders and with help from The Tindall Foundation, we have been able to distribute grants to those making a real difference on the ground.

We’ve produced an infographic outlining some of these achievements….
