How we do it
It all starts with you telling us how your day unfolds, where you need support and what can make life better. This is known as a 'needs assessment'. This means getting to know you, understanding you and enabling you to decide on how we support you. We can help you access a range of Whaikaha - Ministry of Disabled People supports and services and we can talk about your other needs too. Together we’ll create a pathway towards the best life possible for you. Send a referral now so we can start our journey together.
