ParaFed Canterbury's main focus is on promoting Para sports opportunities to our members with physical impairments. However, there are a number of other non-sport services that are available in Canterbury for our community to access.

Below is a list of some of the non-sport services that are available. The majority of these are offered by some of the other fantastic organisations across our region.
