How True Colours Helps

The dedicated and compassionate staff at True Colours ensure the right mix of care is provided to support your child and family through the difficulties and grief of a chronic, life-limiting or life-threatening illness.

Our unique integrated model of care ensures the entire family will be helped throughout your time of need. This holistic approach is provided as part of our free service to families in the greater Waikato region.

Help a Waikato Family

A child’s serious or life-threatening illness affects the whole family. That’s why children and their whānau are at the centre of everything we do. In the past 12 years, we have been able to help over 1,300 families throughout the greater Waikato region, thanks to outstanding community support through sponsorship, donations, trust grants and fundraising events.

Your generosity sustains this free service and helps children and families when they are coping with great uncertainty and stress.
