Are you ready for an outbreak of kindness?

All Right? want everyone in Canterbury to give and receive compliments.

Compliments are free, easy to give, and can make a big difference to someone’s day so they are worth spreading!

All Right? have created 24 compliments to make it even easier to spread some kindness - that can be shared as GIFs or passed on as cards.

Order your pack of FREE compliment cards - for those who like to give their compliments 'old school'. Each card has its own mini mission on the back - like 'sneak me into someone’s pocket' or 'hide me under a keyboard'.


Welcome to Healthy Christchurch

Healthy Christchurch is a CDHB-led intersectoral collaborative partnership based on the WHO Healthy Cities model.

The key idea is that all sectors and groups have a role to play in creating a healthy city, whether their specific focus is recreation, employment, youth, environmental enhancement, transport, housing or any other aspect of city life.

This intersectoral initiative aims at foster collaboration between organisations who have signed The Healthy Christchurch Charter.

Read the Healthy Christchurch Charter.

There are currently over 200 Charter Signatories, ranging from government agencies, businesses, voluntary sector groups, networks and residents associations. The specialist focus of the signatories ranges from children's welfare to sport, from the arts to literacy.
