All you need to know about the registration process and membership

We would love you to get involved in either being a surrogate family or a surrogate grandparent - which ever one you are we require you to complete the registration process so that we understand more about you in order for us to make the best match possible.

We also require you to complete a Police Vetting form. The New Zealand Police Vetting Service provides criminal history checks and other relevant information on potential members to our organisation (an approved agency) that provide care to children and vulnerable members of society. 

Once you go through the registration process we will require payment for your membership (excluding grandparents).

Our different membership fees are:

  • Standard Lifetime Membership $39.00 - offers the opportunity to be connected with a surrogate(s) within a rest home environment,
  • Standard CSC Holders Membership $29.00 (you will need to provide a copy of your card)
  • Active Lifetime Membership for Families $79.00 - offers a connection with a more "Active" surrogate(s)
  • Active CSCHolders Membership $59.00 

Note: Grandparent (grandie) memberships are FREE! All memberships include up to two Police checks, if you need additional police checks carried out, ie, for another over 18 family member living with you, there will be an additional cost of $10.00 per person extra.

Surrogate Grandparents is a non-profit organisation (shortly to become a Charitable Trust) our membership fees help cover the costs of the administration, the  platform and ongoing support. We want to ensure we offer you the best possible service we can.
