Rei Kōtuku Charitable Trust

Rei Kōtuku provides compassionate care to tamariki and whanau during their life's toughest journey.

We are a registered Paediatric Palliative Care service that provides our specialist service for free to tamariki and whanau when they need it.

At Rei Kōtuku, we work with parents antenatally who have a baby with a diagnosis of a serious illness (perinatal palliative care), babies, tamariki and rangatahi who have a serious illness.

That includes young people with cancer who may have a poor prognosis, or have symptoms (such as pain or nausea) that are challenging to manage.

We also see tamariki and young people with rare disorders, including genetic disorders, metabolic conditions, neurological conditions, heart disease, or renal or liver failure.

Rei Kōtuku is here to support any young person who is vulnerable and needs extra physical, social, psychological, spiritual or bereavement support.
