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. Membership has details about the benefits of being a member of AEPC and a link so you can join. We are seeking volunteers for a range of activities in support of new parents. Our Volunteers page gives information about how you can help. Interested in knowing more about our committee? Visit our Committee page. Our story provides a brief history of AEPC.
