Local Coffee Groups – The sharing helps

Coffee groups are a great way to meet other families and offer each other support.  The sharing helps and reduces any feelings of being alone.

All our coffee groups are laid back affairs where you enjoy the companionship of other families, the children can play and you can share whatever you want to.  Usually you bring a small plate to share and of course your child (children).

They are also a great way of Cleft NZ finding out what is important to you and happening in your neck of the woods.  We can have some great conversations at coffee group!

Current Coffee Groups around NZ

Coffee groups are run from time to time in Auckland, Tauranga, Wellington and Christchurch. Please phone to speak with your local regional co-ordinator for more info.

Where is one for me?

If there isn’t one in your area, there may be soon – or you may want to help, we will support you to set up something for local families. You can list your event on the website and we will help you with contact details for other families in your region.

If you are currently meeting with some families in your area, please let us know so that we can let other local families know of the great work you are doing.

Each coffee group is advertised on this website under Whats New and we inform everyone on our Coffee group list by either e-mail or phone when the next one is happening.  We also list our coffee groups on the Facebook page.  If you want to be included on the notification list give us a call on .
