Elevate Christian Disability Trust has served the disability community in New Zealand for over 40 years, creating places of belonging, hope and encouragement – often in partnership with the local church.
Elevate exists to encourage, equip, educate and evangelise people who live with disability, their family and friends, and the church.
Kirsty Armitage (National Director) and Di Willis (Founder) shared the vision of Elevate and invite us to join them in praying for this remarkable Ministry.
