Variety – the Children’s Charity and AA Insurance launch their new partnership to enable children and young people to thrive in Aotearoa New Zealand.
AA Insurance Chief Executive Chris Curtin says the company will support Variety NZ’s existing programmes and collaborate on research that will make a difference to young New Zealanders and their whānau.
“Every day, one in five young New Zealanders go without the basics that most of us take for granted, which has a profound effect on their health, education and wellbeing. At AA Insurance, we care about the things our customers care about, like helping young New Zealanders to thrive, and so we are focused on playing a more active role in our community to help contribute to a more positive future for everyone.
“We’re therefore proud to be partnering with Variety NZ, to help them deliver their purpose of enabling all children and young people to thrive in Aotearoa New Zealand.”
Variety NZ Chief Executive Susan Glasgow says children living in poverty are affected more deeply than their peers, especially at Christmas time when families are reeling from the effects of prolonged lockdowns because of the pandemic.
“It’s through our partners that we can help make a difference, so we’re delighted to work with AA Insurance. There is obvious synergy between the aspirations of our values-aligned organisations and a shared commitment to New Zealand and its people. I know that by working together we can enable children and young people to thrive in Aotearoa New Zealand.”
