What's going on....?!

We have been doing everything from NZ Fashion Week, to multiple trips to the snow, overseas trips to the Gold Coast, getting vegetable plots started, picking hundreds of kilos of lemons and venturing everywhere from Kaikoura to Northland. Recreate youth have got it good! In this email we have links to our newsletters, a fundraising campaign we are running to help us with MOXIE and information about services out there that could help you with you and your child's future.

The moment that all of you have been waiting for... Newsletters!

The pictures below will take you to our online links for our Term for Newsletters for Auckland, Waikato and Christchurch. Not from these areas? That's all good! Give us a call and we can see what programmes might be available to you. We do our best to make all our programmes accessible no matter where you are in Aotearoa.

AUCKLAND NEWSLETTER
CHRISTCHURCH NEWSLETTER
Social enterprise Fundraiser

Equip our youth with another skill to learn... beekeeping! Our orchards need bees so we are setting up apiaries at both!

MOXIE - 'meaningful opportunities crossing into employment' has teams of Recreate youth overseeing two orchards. We are hoping to extend another opportunity to the moxie crew by setting up beehives at both orchards for a few to manage with support. Every dollar you donate towards this project will help us set up this social enterprise. Also every donation over $20 will get you a jar of honey at the end of summer!

Share this with your friends as we have only two weeks to source the donations needed to achieve this and get the hives ready for spring. 
Head to givealittle to donate to our cause.

Our website has been designed with you in mind. It has been broken down to all our programmes streams and makes it easy for you to make a booking request to the programme that you want to come on!

Have you got a plan to get where you want to go? 
In this picture is Mitchell, a young man from Recreate journeying on the Routeburn track to get to his goal of completing the 32km track. With every desired destination we need a plan on how to get there. We at Recreate would encourage every family and young person with a disability to start considering what is a good plan for a good life. 
ImagineBetter is an organisation who partners with disabled people and their families as they imagine, plan and go after the good things in life.  They challenge and change how people, organisations and communities think about disability. Their team provides advice, planning support, mentoring and events throughout New Zealand. 
Feeling stuck on what to do next? Get in touch with them to plan a better and more intentional future, email sue@imaginebetter.co.nz 
INDIVIDUALISED FUNDING 
In your most recent needs assessment have you considered asking about Individualised Funding (IF) including respite*? Looking for more one on one support to help your young person achieve their goals but want more choice and control over who that support person is?
