Recreate NZ provides life-changing experiences for youth with disabilities across Aotearoa
Recreate New Zealand is a unique and innovative Charitable Trust established in 2002. Our Kaupapa is all about life-changing experiences for young people with disabilities. We do this through the provision of quality adventure, recreation, social and education programmes.
We seek to benefit all New Zealanders by enabling inclusive communities, where disabled people are supported to achieve everyday goals, and are regarded as valued members of society.
Recreate currently works with over 750 families and their young people, offering over 5,000 opportunities each year across a range of programmes in the Auckland, Waikato, Wellington, Bay of Plenty and Christchurch regions.
We facilitate programmes that support individual social learning, as well as educating the community so they feel more comfortable with neurodiversity. In doing so, we aim to remove access barriers that obstruct participation and inclusion.
Raised funds go directly to the provision of more meaningful opportunities for our community of awesome young people. We invite you to join our Recreate waka, and help us create more ‘life-changing experiences for young people with disabilities’.
