"As patron of Aunties & Uncles and an aunt myself to a number of children through the service, I can personally endorse the great value of this much needed charitable organisation. Funds and volunteers are desperately needed, not only to continue running existing networks, but to establish Aunties & Uncles services in increasingly depressed and needy areas. Please help us to help each other."
Building a better life for children who face social or emotional challenges, by linking them to volunteer "aunts" and "uncles" who provide friendship and mentoring.
"The main thing needed in our community is a friendly helping hand by a non- threatening or non- judgemental person....." Rose White, Founder
“I am delighted to announce that Wesley Mission will continue to operate the Aunties & Uncles program with no significant changes to our purpose and focus. Our current staff will have the same, and possibly greater, contact with our children, parents, and aunties and uncles. Wesley Mission has an enduring record of care for vulnerable families and children, so they are an excellent fit for us.”
— Pat Gilchrist, Chair of the Aunties and Uncles Board
