Support our mission

As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely on your support to help us care for people living with disability and young families and children in New Zealand.

You can make a donation, join us as a volunteer or provide ongoing sponsorship.

Your support allows us to invest in services that reduce disadvantage in our communities and provide high quality health and social services.

How to donate

Making donation or organising sponsorship helps us provide life enhancing and enabling care to people living with a physical or neurological disability and provide support for families in need.


Our volunteers are valued members of our team who provide support, assistance and friendship to people who are experiencing challenges in their lives.

LAST TICKETS for the Spring Gala Dinner this Friday (26th Oct). Superb 5 course dinner, with drinks provided - Live Auction including a Samsung 4K Curved Smart TV, a Richie McCaw All Blacks Jersey, and more - Special Guest Speaker - Gary Endacott (son of rugby league legend Frank Endacott), born with cerebral palsy - his parents were told he would never walk. He has climbed Kilimanjaro, run 4 New York marathons, plays league, is a NZ & World Disabled Tennis Champion and all round funny guy. It's set to be a great night with proceeds going to building NZ's first, fully accessible, wheel chair friendly, tiny home.

We took 3 of our residents out to the Air Force Museum in Wigram yesterday. They really enjoyed it and especially loved sitting in the cockpit of the "macchi" training aircraft that the Air Force used to use. The museum is getting better and better all the time and is a wonderful historic record of Wigram Air Force Base. We loved reading about various pilots and Wing Commanders etc. The POW section was really interesting and we had a lot of fun pretending that the guard dogs that you can hear barking, had got us....LOL

Caring for those with a physical or neurological disability - Our St John of God facility in Halswell created a DIY waterslide in Feb 2018. It was such a success with staff, residents and families that they thought - "How can we do this again, but maybe do it better?". Thanks to the generous help of HEB Construction - Here's the 1st stage of the MK II version.
