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 (61%) and private donation (39%). The Centre's programmes cost approximately $2 million per year to run, leaving in excess of $700,000 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.

Riding for Ryder Fundraiser - 11 November 2016
Starting at Bluff and finishing at Cape Reinga - three scooters and a mini will be tearing up the country at a leisurely pace to help raise awareness and much needed funds for the Champion Centre. Anthony wanted to do something to help his friend's grandson Ryder who attends the Champion Centre, so he decided he would ride 2316km on a scooter. This is a quote from Anthony "It will be a physical challenge but nothing like the daily challenge some parents/family face, its a Ride for Ryder".
