Please tell us and everyone else about your organisation and its purpose

GrandFriends by Surrogate Grandparents New Zealand Charitable Trust brings together families and “grandfriends” to those who feel they may benefit from such a union. We connect families with GrandFriends (of any age) for mutual benefit, support, companionship and the prevention of social isolation and loneliness.

Perhaps you have moved to New Zealand to be with your partner and left your family behind in another part of the country or world, or perhaps your parents are no longer alive?

Maybe your children have decided not to have their own children, or are living a distance away and you have loads of love to give?

Whatever your circumstances, GrandFriends are here to help you bridge that gap, by providing support, friendship & fun through the uniting of strong family partnerships.

How does infoodle make your life easier so you can spend more time making a difference?

infoodle is our one stop shop for all things GrandFriends.

Having a team (& members) who are so geographically spread across New Zealand, we needed a database that was simple to use and everyone could have access to the information only they needed to see.

The ability to be able to link infoodle to our application form on our website and have that information drop straight into the database is invaluable. The links with Mailchimp, and in the future Xero, I'm sure will all provide us with huge benefits.
