The UpRising Trust
The UpRising Trust was established after the February 2011 Earthquake to help facilitate the rebuild of the Rainbow Communities of Christchurch. It’s primary purposes (from
the Trust deed) are to promote and advance the wellness, welfare, wellbeing, education, leadership, and social cohesion of Rainbow Communities; and to provide a hub of information relevant to Rainbow Communities and Rainbow People of Canterbury. The Trust encourages the Rainbow communities to come together and to take control of their own future. In its rst 6 months the Trust organised fundraising and community events and donated over $5,000 to Rainbow Community groups. The Uprising Trust will continue these and will undertake a needs assessment and will develop further projects from there. Volunteers are welcome to register an interest in helping run events and other projects.
