We can make a stronger impact together.

It takes a whole community to make a lasting difference and we feel privileged to be a part of the journey towards a more inclusive Canterbury.

We would like to thank the following organisations for their continued support;

  • Rata Foundation

    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 value the support from the Rata Foundation and believe that together we can achieve meaningful outcomes for the people we support, their families/whanau and our wider communities.


  • The Lion Foundation

    The Lion Foundation has generously funded tee-ball equipment for people with disabilities to join their community sports games. Sport is a fantastic way for people all ages and stages to connect over. We are thrilled to have received this contribution for the people we support to further their community connections. Thank you Lion Foundation! 

  • David Ellison Charitable Trust

    We are committed to supporting better outcomes for people with autism and their families/whanau. With support from the David Ellison Charitable Trust, we can provide a specialised sensory equipment kit to assist people with their sensory challenges. We believe together with the support of our communities, we can make a long term difference for people with autism and intellectual disabilities and the outcomes they choose to seek.   

  • Freemasons Charity

    The Christchurch Freemasons Charity generously donated funds to purchase a ride on lawn mower for people with disabilities to gain valuable work experience towards their employment goals. This contribution enables a group of men with intellectual disabilities to learn and develop their skills in garden maintenance whilst growing their confidence and preparing them for further work experience and employment opportunities. With this support, we can assist people with disabilities in growing their community connections which is vital in providing sustainable supports for people to live the life they choose.

  • Maurice Carter Charitable Trust

    The donation from Maurice Carter Charitable Trust allows us to continue assisting young people in building their confidence in their abilitites and interests. We work with different communities and local businesses raising awareness of young people's goals and how we can support them to achieve a great life, their way. By supporting young people to lead their best life, we reduce the impact of poverty they experience as a result of their disability or impairment which helps Canterbury and our greater community to become more inclusive. 

    Thank you for your contribution to the lives of young people with disabilitites.
