About Multiples Bay of Plenty

Multiples Bay of Plenty is a non-profit, completely volunteer-run organisation, which provides support and services throughout the Bay of Plenty – including Tauranga, Mt Maunganui, Whakatane, Waihi, Katikati, Rotorua and everywhere in between.

Our charity has been running for 25 years and the number of families having twins or triplets continues to grow. As an organisation we aim to provide all families with multiples support, information, access to resources and help to establish and nurture relationships with other families within the community. We endeavor to do this by running regular playgroups for all ages, events, social media forums for parents to connect and learn,  we provide assistance in many forms when required and ongoing support and partnership with families on their journey of life with multiples.

While our charity is run independently, we are affiliated to Multiples New Zealand.

We have been a registered charity with Charities Services since 2013 (Registration Number: CC49875).
