Auckland East Parents Centre (AEPC) is a volunteer organisation run by parents for parents. We are one of 50 Parents Centres nationwide. To visit Parents Centre New Zealand’s website, please click here.

We serve families primarily in the Howick, Pakuranga, Botany, Bucklands Beach, Flat Bush, Whitford, Beachlands and Maraetai areas. If you do not live in these areas, click here to search for your local Parents Centre.

We provide antenatal and parenting education, support new parents in their role, and advocate to improve birthing and parenting experiences in the greater community and the health care sector.

We’re an enthusiastic group of volunteers, all from East Auckland ourselves, many are parents who have been through our courses themselves, while others are just helpful humans looking to do good in the neighbourhood. We are always looking for new volunteers to help us continue our good work in the community. There are a range of ways you can volunteer, so everyone can help out and utilise their unique skillset. Our Volunteers page gives information about how you can help.
