How we do it
It all starts with a request for a needs assessment. You can apply for yourself, or someone else can do it for you. There’s a range of Ministry of Health supports and services out there and we’ll check if you can access them. We want to understand your disability needs and together we’ll create a pathway so you can live the best life possible for you.
