Inspiring independent living

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.
