Welcome to the Champion Centre


The Champion Centre provides multi-disciplinary early intervention services to infants and young children with significant disabilities and their families in Canterbury. The programme is offered in a centre-based model of service, in partnership with parents, and in accordance with international best practice.  Please read about our model by clicking the “Who we are” and “What we do” tabs above.
The programme is administered by the Christchurch Early Intervention Trust (Registration number CC22708) and is funded by both government (57%) and private donation (43%). The Centre's programmes cost approximately $2 million per year to run, leaving in excess of $750,000 to be raised each year. Your donation can make a difference in the lives of vulnerable children and help them reach their full potential as citizens of New Zealand.
