Covid-19 Update

Covid-19 Update: We're open for a range of services during the Level 4 lockdown. Use the Ask for an Appointment to get a phone appointment with us during this time. Please note that we will not be offering phone appointments over the Easter Weekend (10-13 April). 

We will be able to help with: emergency contraception prescriptions, contraceptive pill repeats (and some contraceptive pill starts) and abortion information.

If you are due for your depo provera jab or for your implant to be changed, we will give you a prescription for the pill until we're able to do face-to-face appointments again. 

If you have an appointment booked with us in the next month, we will be in touch with you to reschedule.

Due to infection control requirements we are unable to provide any face-to-face consultations in our clinics during the lockdown.

Schools, principals and teachers: Our Navigating the Journey sexuality education resources are available for just $25 (that's half-price) until the end of April. Our resource shop is closed for the duration of the lockdown but these e-resources are available for purchase.

Young people and access to services

Family Planning believes that all young people have a right to free, confidential sexual and reproductive health services, information and sexuality education.

Family Planning believes that sexuality is a part of human life and young people have a right to safely explore and enjoy their sexuality. We believe that young people should be supported to live free from discrimination, abuse and coersion.

Young people should be prepared with knowledge, skills, an awareness of their own values, and access to services before they need it, so they can make positive informed decisions about their sexual and reproductive health and be healthy and safe.

As young people develop, they increasingly gain independence from parents, caregivers and whānau and take on greater responsibility for their own decisions. Young people in New Zealand have a right to get reproductive and sexual health care that’s easily accessible and where they are able to understand the choices before them, including the risks and benefits.

Family Planning supports young people to seek support from their parents, caregivers and whānau. We have clear guidelines and rules to follow where a health practitioner is concerned about the safety and well-being of a young person, and/or where a young person is not able to make health care decisions in their own best interest.  We understand there are situations where seeking support from parents, caregivers or whānau could be unsafe and receiving support from another trusted adult is appropriate.

Family Planning is committed to improving the sexual and reproductive health of young people in New Zealand. Across the organisation we work to make sure all young people get the reproductive and sexual health services they need and all students in New Zealand schools receive valuable, inclusive comprehensive sexuality education.
