We support people with…

  • Lifestyle choices
  • Opportunities to maximise personal development and community inclusion
  • Living options and homes of choice
  • Flexibility in person-directed support

We empower people through…

  • Self-determination – Disabled people are in control of their lives.
  • Beginning early – Invest early in families and wh?nau to support them; to be aspirational for their disabled child; to build community and natural supports; and to support disabled children to become independent, rather than waiting for a crisis before support is available.
  • Person-centred – Disabled people have supports that are tailored to their individual needs and goals, and that take a whole life approach rather than being split across programmes.
  • Ordinary life outcomes – Disabled people are supported to live an everyday life in everyday places; and are regarded as citizens with opportunities for learning, employment, having a home and family, and social participation – like others at similar stages of life.
  • Mainstream first – Disabled people are supported to access mainstream services before specialist disability services.
  • Mana enhancing – The abilities and contributions of disabled people and their families are recognised and respected.
  • Easy to use – Disabled people have supports that are simple to use and flexible.
  • Relationship building – Supports build and strengthen relationships between disabled people, their wh?nau and community.
