About us

A permanent home for Interlock

Interlock NZ is situated in Cambridge, New Zealand. Our members come from across Cambridge and surrounding areas including Te Awamutu, Hamilton and Matamata.

From 2022, our programme will have a permanent ‘home’ — a fun, safe, welcoming space for people who are living with a disability to connect with friends and community while developing opportunities to learn, share and connect.


Projects with purpose

Our members work on projects with purpose, experimenting with a range of papercraft options, small kit set building projects, and micro-business opportunities. They can explore life skills such as sewing and cooking while creating life-long social connections.

"Our focus is 'to work with, not do for' our members."

Community Connections

With each new project we keep in mind that we are supported by our community, and in turn we often make extra items to give back to those in need in our community.

Finding individual expression

We strive to guide our members to find their individual expression. When given the ability to explore, our members produce unique creations, and we love seeing their confidence grow when they achieve something new.

“The little things. The little moments. They aren’t little.”

Interlock NZ ethos

Where life, disability, and community connect

Intrinsic value

We believe everyone has a place, a voice, intrinsic value and a purpose that deserves to be acknowledged.

Equity + Equality

Equity and equality are not the same things, though they walk in partnership.

Innate humanity

The value of a person does not reside in their status, gender, colour or social standing. Rather, the value of a person is in their innate humanity and as an individual.

Accessible, affordable + achievable

Our programme  must be accessible,  affordable, and achievable for all members.

Help us achieve Equity + Equality

"An amazing place to be"

"I have been helping Interlock for the last few months and it is such an amazing place to be. I thoroughly enjoy helping such awesome people with their craft making, it’s a wonderful thing to spend time with them and is my Happy Place 😊. My 13-year-old Granddaughter also loves to come and help when she gets the chance."
