Welcome to Spectrum Care

We're an independent charitable trust that provides support for children, young people and adults with disabilities and their families.

We provide a personalised and flexible support continuum that includes 24-hour support for people living in residential homes throughout the Auckland and Waikato regions, and respite support for people living in Auckland, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty.

We offer specialised Home support, Transitions support and Aspirations support for people in the greater Auckland region, along with a School Holiday Programme of activities for children.

Our independent living support is specifically focused on empowering people to their lives of choice - lives like any other - in the community.

We also offer a person-focused, person-directed Business Enterprises programme aimed at supporting people towards their employment goals.

Call us today on 09 634 3790 to find out more about our support options.

Our philosophy

We see the sunflower as representing the people we support and show this relationship by incorporating the sunflower into our logo.

Turning its head to track the sun across the sky, the sunflower stands tall and proud.

Sunflowers can reach great heights, but may require support to achieve their full potential. Similarly, we endeavour to provide person-centred, person-directed support to assist people to 'live a great life'.

A fully 'person-centred’ approach (embodied by our ‘Outcomes’ philosophy) involves a shared vision of fostering the person's unique strengths and potential.

The full bloom is achieved when staff, family and the broader community work together to support the individual outcomes sought by the person.

The developmental stages of a sunflower represent the person's life progression, and also reflects the evolution of disability support over the past three decades – from institutional care, to group residential support and, most recently, to supported independent living.
