The Guardian Angels Trust is a small charitable trust set up by Leanne Hegan and Helen Jackson in 2004, specifically to support the needs of terminally ill children and their families. The Trust was set up in response to the growing awareness that poverty does exist within New Zealand and that families who have a palliative child are often thrust into a level of poverty as they struggle to do the hardest job that any parent will ever have to do.
The Guardian Angels Trust was set up to help minimise some of the financial stressors so that families can focus on supporting their sick child to live as fully as possible for as long as possible. To that extent a commitment was made by the Trustees to raise money that would be given directly to families through practical means such as the provision of supermarket vouchers, help with household bills and incidentals that would directly benefit the wellbeing of the child and family.
