Our Disability Support Services are provided for people who are over 18 years of age who have a physical and/or intellectual disability.
Our service supports the New Zealand Disability Strategy with the vision of a fully inclusive society. We aim to promote each person’s quality of life and enable community participation and maximum independence, so that each person can live life their way, on their own terms.
Supported Independent Living Services
The Supported Independent Living Community Service aims to maintain or increase each individual’s independence in their own home to meet their social and basic living skills. This service may include staff providing direct support, liaison or advocacy regarding matters such as seeking accommodation, financial support or employment and/or training. Support hours provided will depend on each individuals needs.
We currently have 3 Homes operating in the Hutt Valley region providing 24 hour care and support for people with varying physical and intellectual disabilities and needs who are no longer able to be supported in their own homes.
Our Residential Service aims to maintain or increase each individual’s independence, and provide support and opportunities for habilitation and/or rehabilitation to have a normal life.
