The Little Fighters team is a group of Taranaki people passionate about supporting those in need in their community.

The Little Fighters Charitable Trust offers support to families who have a child with a life threatening illness, or where a parent has a life threatening illness that affects the child or children, whether it be financial or non-monetary services, our aim to focus assistance where needed to each family.

 We also raise awareness and provide resources and connections to families who require assistance as a result of a life threatening illness affecting the child or children.

Its really easy to get involved with Little Fighters Trust, we have had various groups, clubs, Schools and workplaces fundraise on our behalf. We love this as it not only helps the Trust financially, it also raises the awareness amongst our community. People learn more about who we are, what we do and gives them a chance to become involved personally or put us in touch with somebody in need of our help.

We have had some great donations from fundraising done in schools via way of Mufti Days, Clubs and Social Groups will often donate proceeds from their events and hold fundraising initiatives on our behalf, also workplaces have selected us as their chosen charity to support in fundraising done internally.

If you are interested in finding out more about Little Fighters Trust please contact us and will are more than happy to come and speak to you and see if we are the type of charity you would like to have as the focus your fundraising. We are also more than happy to speak to your members, workers or students during the fundraising to tell them more about where their money is going.

We rely on the generosity of our communities to help us make a difference to these local families. For some of these families careers are put on hold, sometimes indefinitely, family homes sold to cover treatment costs, entire futures are thrown into turmoil, particularly when treatment is for an extended period, or, if treatment is available. We cannot do this without the help of business and corporate sponsorship. If your company is looking for a worthy charity to support please contact us to discuss sponsorship options.

We have so many amazing events coming up, but the 29th of October is our biggest!  We need your support to help make this a huge success, so that we can continue to support Taranaki families battling life threatening illness.

 OUR VISION

Our vision is to make a difference to families that have children suffering from or affected by a family member suffering from a life threatening illness. We aim to do this by providing support and assistance, both financial and non-monetary services. We are a community based organisation dedicated to easing the burden for these families who are suffering enough due to the impact that serious illness has on every day life.

OUR MISSION
The Little Fighters Trust seeks to provide financial and non-monetary assistance, including information, support and assistance to families in our local community, Taranaki, who have a child suffering from or affected by a parent suffering from a life threatening illness. One of the key roles is to facilitate the various resources and agencies available, both in private and public sectors, for the benefit of these families.

RESOURCES
When a family has a member struck down with a life threatening illness, there are a lot of questions, and often important decisions made hurriedly as entire families are uprooted and transplanted from one end of the country to the other. The Little Fighters Trust can ease some of the burden with the many resources available. We also have many charitable partners across the country that we can call on to help out.
