Are you looking for help for yourself, your whānau or a person in your care?
Find out about the support that’s available to you.
Aspire Canterbury has been an integral part of the Christchurch disability and elderly community since 1982. We enhance the lives of disabled people, and people with impairments by enabling community participation and maximum independence. We do this by connecting you to the right resources and reducing everyday barriers, by being a trusted source of information, providing mobility products and associated services, and enabling people with impairments to achieve their best life.
We can't always control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we react to it - that's when we "THRIVE"
Aspire Canterbury and Braintree Wellness Centre are excited to present THRIVE!
We invite the disabled community and their whānau to join us for a series of inspiring talks. Featuring passionate experts with lived experience, showcasing their resilience and success, you will gain valuable tools and strategies to help you THRIVE.
