It's always exciting to return to the Champion Centre for the start of a new year. 2022 was no different. Staff returned for our annual Training Week in late January with renewed energy. A very strong team, committed to their mahi, they are the Champion Centre's greatest asset. This year we welcomed three new staff members: Dave and Ashleigh, both Physiotherapists, and Rachael, a Music Therapist. We are fortunate to have appointed such highly skilled and experienced staff to our team.
But it's the return of children and whānau that we really look forward to most of all. We love welcoming families back, seeing children who have grown a little over the holidays and reconnecting with everyone.
For 2022 we have made some small changes to our programmes with the introduction of a group session alongside our usual individual sessions. You can read more about the group sessions in this edition of Connect.
Families, staff and supporters make up our wonderful Champion Centre community. We are particularly grateful to Karl, Teddy's Dad, for sharing his story with us. Have a read, it's inspiring. We are also grateful to Brown Kiwi Ltd for providing our stunning new sign on Burwood Road. No-one will miss us now.
And finally, we couldn't do what we do without continued donations, big or small. Check out how you can help us below.
