Ep 20 - Under the 'Canopy' of a new social enterprise with Christine Deacon
Play • 19 min

This week we speak to Christine Deacon, the founder of Canopy Eating Disorders Support Services. This social enterprise is New Zealand’s first.

Canopy is New Zealand's first eating disorder specific peer-to-peer support, both online and in person, community-centric service.

It makes practical support affordable and accessible to all Kiwis affected by eating disorders and disordered eating to help them flourish and reclaim their lives. 

During her personal struggle with an eating disorder in her teen and young adult years, Christine was exposed to what she says were clear gaps and opportunities in care services. It propelled her to create systemic, sustainable change for Kiwis. Inspired and supported by ‘sister organisations’ overseas, Christine set up Canopy.

She shares her journey with us in this latest episode of Kiwis in Business.
