Your Current Charity Choices:
Alzheimers New Zealand represents people affected by dementia at a national level by raising awareness of dementia, providing information and resources for people affected by dementia, advocating for high quality services for people affected by dementia, and promoting research about prevention, treatment, cure and care of people affected by dementia.
Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a group of conditions that affect how well our brains work. Dementia can affect anyone, and as people get older the chances of developing dementia increase. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease – which around two-thirds of people with dementia have. Current estimates have over 50,000 New Zealanders with dementia, and this number is expected to triple by 2050. Dementia also has a significant impact on the family/whanāu and friends of people with the condition.
With a vision of working towards a world without dementia, and a mission of a dementia friendly New Zealand, Alzheimers New Zealand supports a federation of 21 local Alzheimers New Zealand organisations which provide support, education, information and related services directly to members of their communities who are affected by dementia.
"Supporting Alzheimers NZ will help us continue this work for a better life for people affected by dementia."

HUHA - Helping You Help Animals
Red Cross work in Vanuatu
With Cyclone Pam causing catastrophic devastation in Vanuatu, we've asked that our latest donation to Red Cross NZ be used exclusively to help provide relief for the people of this island nation. The type of work Red Cross is doing in Vanuatu includes the distribution of essential household items, tarpaulins, shelter toolkits, safe drinking water and health and first aid programs. They will also be rolling out longer term recovery projects to support the stronger and safer rebuilding of damaged homes and of course the restoration and strengthening of livelihoods will also be crucial due to the significant damage to crops, livestock and fisheries.
