We were delighted to receive funding again from the Rata Foundation in 2019. This funding allows us to continue exploring community partnerships and opportunities for people with disabilities who were transitioning from school to work. This service uses personally designed programmes that are developed around each person’s interests and goals. That might include life skills training, leisure pursuits, work experience and community group involvement.

We would like to thank the following investors and community supporters for their contribution to the lives of people with disabilities;
The Lion Foundation
The Lion Foundation has generously funded tee-ball equipment for people with disabilities to join their community sports games.

With support from the David Ellison Charitable Trust, we can provide one specialised sensory equipment kit to assist young people with their sensory challenges.
The Christchurch Freemasons Charity generously donated funds to purchase a ride-on lawnmower for people with disabilities to gain valuable work experience towards their employment goals.
