Inspire, Enable, Achieve

Welcome to Parafed Wellington

At Parafed Wellington we inspireenable and achieve.

We do this through our members and supporters being involved in sporting, 

recreation or leisure opportunities.  

We work with a range of organisations and partners to make our members 

sporting and recreational lives as great as possible.   

Parafed Wellington Office will be closed from Monday 12 March to Wednesday 21 March.

Catriona is winging off to the Winter Paralympic Games in Pyeongchang from 2 - 20 March.

Kate is spinning off to the World Para Cycling Track Champs in Rio from 18 - 28 March.

During this time, Catriona and Kate will try to check emails but no guarantee. If you need to contact Parafed Wellington urgently, please contact Alan Signal President (bentnotbroken4u at

Weetbix Try Wellington

Again Parafed Wellington has entered a team into the Weetbix Try in Wellington.  It is so great to see the numbers of young members registering for this event increasing every year.  It's all happening on Sunday 18 March at Kilbirnie Park.  The team would love to see supporters cheering them on during the event so if you have some time to spare on that Sunday morning, drop down to Kilbirnie Park and give them a big Shout Out.

Congratulations to our member Genevieve McLachlan who was awarded a MNZM in the 2016 Queens Birthday honours

Ms Genevieve McLachlan is committed to improving the lives of New Zealanders living with a disability or impairment.

Ms McLachlan established Adaptive Technology Solutions, a holistic consultancy service that works with people who have experienced a range of accident or health related disabilities and impairments, and provides people with assistive technology to improve their quality of life. Although she grew up with cerebral palsy and a visual impairment, she has never let her disabilities slow her down.

She spent almost seven years working for the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind, providing vocational and adaptive technology assessments, and training for blind and low vision clients. She is also a Trustee of SailAbility Wellington, which runs sailing programmes for people with a wide range of disabilities, and was a Guide Dog Handler Consultant for the Blind Foundation.

She is a past Treasurer of the Guide Dog Alliance Inc. and was a member of Grey Power Upper Hutt. She is currently a Be.Welcome Coach with Be.Accessible. Ms McLachlan received multiple awards at the David Awards in 2014, which honour champions in small business, including the Bizbuss Most community-minded business, and the Solo Meo Award for a business owner who runs their business single-handedly.
