More than 2000 children and teenagers with severe allergies will be able to get free EpiPen injectors from today.

They’ll be funded by the FundaPen project, a collaboration between advocacy group Allergy New Zealand and Pub Charity.

Allergy New Zealand chief executive Mark Dixon said the new project was designed to provide some relief to struggling families, with EpiPens costing between $120 to $350.
