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.

Parents' and caregivers' survey released

Wednesday, January 15, 2020

Publications

Family Planning thought it was timely and important to hear more from parents in New Zealand about their views of relationship and sexuality education, both at home and school. This survey is a follow-up to a survey on young people’s views of relationship and sexuality education and is part two of a three-part series to improve our understanding of how we can better meet the needs of young people, parents and caregivers, and teachers.

Parents told us: 

  • 83 per cent of respondents said they talked openly to their child/children about relationships and sexuality. 
  • They think relationship and sexuality education is a really important part of learning at school with an average rating of importance of 87. 
  • They want more information on talking to their children about safety online, pornography, sexting, bullying and harassment. 

We say that relationship and sexuality education is a partnership between parents and caregivers and schools. Schools should be supported to building on parents' and caregivers' confidence and interest in this area of the curriculum in order to enhance their learning programmes.
