The Eldernet Group recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with a special event, which included an appearance by 2022 New Zealander of the Year, Tā Tipene O’Regan ONZ. The milestone coincided with the opening of the organisation’s new building, less than 1 kilometre away from where the company began in the Christchurch suburb of New Brighton.

“Over the past 25 years, we’ve seen people become empowered with information in ways we never thought possible, and we’re delighted to have played a part in that,” says Eleanor. “What we are particularly proud of is the way we haven’t waivered from our vision of making life easier and better for all older people – even if that has meant rocking the boat over the years.”
