Finalists in the 2018 Asia Pacific Eldercare Innovation Awards, The Therapy Box is a small charity whose aim is to provide fun and engaging activities for residents in care facilities in New Zealand.

Money donated helps fund equipment, events and activities for people residing in care facilities. We run an activity library where facilities can lend games from us.

We also run a scholarship program to assist a student or new graduate Diversional Therapist attend conference. Applicants design an activity; the winning activity is constructed and added to our library.

      Wow! We cannot thank you enough for this generous donation! Currently we have over 10 care homes on our waiting list as we don't have enough activities in our library to service everyone. This donation will enable us to buy more activities, including something that has been on our wish list for a while; a birthday celebration activity box. Thank you, you have truly made this Easter extra special. - Hannah, founder of The Therapy Box
