My name is Jenny Murphy and I originally hail from Auckland. I moved initially to Wellington for my job and then onto the Wairarapa where I have been living for the past 13 years. I love the Wairarapa and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I have a seventeen year old son who lives with me at my home and attends college in the Wairarapa.
I first came to Supporting Families as a volunteer in 2010. When the admin/volunteer job became available, I jumped at the chance to work in such a supportive and welcoming environment.
As well as providing admin services, I also provide support to our great team of volunteers who man the resource centre. This is a very rewarding role; it has helped me to develop confidence and extend my skills. It also provides a great opportunity to meet all sorts of amazing people. We provide a diverse range of resources on mental health and disabilities and I invite you all to come along and check us out. I look forward to seeing you.
Kia ora, my name is Jill Renata. I moved with my whanau
to Masterton in 2005 from Central Hawkes Bay. I am the
Family/Whanau Support Worker. My role is to provide
support, advocacy and education for individuals /families
who have someone in their family with mental health issues.
