Nelson, Tasman


Uprising! is an education and support service, a six month programme (3 months active, 3 months followup) that combines life skills education, adventure (and other) activities, and pastoral care for marginalised adults in Nelson and Tasman who may be caught up in the justice, welfare or health systems. The programme creates change due to its wraparound nature and development of mind, body and spirit. Clients depart better empowered, healthier, happier and fitter with greater self reliance and better habits. They are ready for the next stage of their lives - employment, training, or whichever direction they deem is best for them to head in.
