Hōhepa Canterbury is a disability support and service provider offering diverse living options, learning & activity programmes, community participation, and therapies – all inspired by anthroposophy. Hōhepa Canterbury supports 140 people to live fully engaged lives. We have two main sites in Somerfield and Halswell, along with a number of homes nearby in our community. The Artemis Centre, Hōhepa Hall, management and administration staff all work from the Birchfield campus. The campus is nestled at the foot of the Port Hills amidst a 4 acre setting of lawns and gardens. Nine kilometres away the Halswell Campus houses the Gaia Centre, hobby gardens, two tunnel houses, and an orchard all within a picturesque 40 acre farm setting. We support 168 people to fully live their lives with 270 staff supporting them in their homes and daily lives. Volunteers can support individuals to access community activities or enjoy shared interests such as music or crafts in their homes. Volunteers also assist at our day service programme, with activities such as crafts, hiking, barista coffee making and the music groups. Volunteers develop great relationships with the people we support, something that is key to personal wellbeing and creates a sense of connection to community.
