Halberg Advisers

Halberg Advisers are based around New Zealand and support young people and families to connect them to sport and recreation opportunities.

Halberg Activity Fund

The Halberg Activity Fund provides grants to physically disabled young Kiwis to enable them to participate in sport and recreation. Grants are provided to support

physically disabled young people (aged 5 – 21) and help fund the costs of equipment, lessons, coaching or camps, thanks to the support from the Eagles Golfing Society of New Zealand.

What can you apply for?

  • Equipment – either the adaption of equipment or the purchase of disability sport equipment
  • Lessons and/or coaching
  • Camps – costs associated with the young person attending the camp


The fund accepts applications made by, or on behalf of, individual physically disabled young people.


Halberg Games

The Halberg Games is a national three day sports competition open to 8-21 year olds with a physical or visual impairment. Athletes compete for their regions and

experience an authentic Games village environment. The event gives athletes an opportunity to enjoy the thrill of competition, healthy camaraderie and pursue further sporting goals. The sports festival includes opening and closing ceremonies, masterclass sessions and up to 20 different sports.
