Healthy Families Ōtautahi Christchurch

It's about all of us leading healthy change in the places we live, learn, work and play.


Healthy Families Ōtautahi Christchurch works within Sport Canterbury's wider Regional Sports Trust team, to support community-led change across the region - from schools, sports, and workplaces to maraes and places of worship.

We want environments where people live, learn, work and play to:

  • Improve nutrition
  • Increase physical activity
  • Be smokefree
  • Reduce alcohol-related harm
  • Improve mental health and resilience
