Support DTNZ

Help us help the community

Dance & Arts Therapy NZ is a charity making a difference to the lives of thousands of Kiwis each year. Since 2013, we’ve helped more than 18,000 people using creative-based therapies. This powerful form of therapy enhances a person’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

We support tamariki and adults - with a focus on people with disabilities, mental health challenges, at-risk communities and survivors of sexual trauma. More and more people are needing our help, and we don’t have enough funding to provide these essential services. To continue supporting the community, we need your help. Together, we can have a significant impact.

DTNZ is a Registered Charitable Trust and your donation is tax deductible.
