    Our aspiration is to provide the best life possible for people we support, working closely with whānau, underpinned by Enabling Good Lives Principles :

    Self-determination

    Disabled people are in control of their lives.

    Beginning early

  • Invest early in families and whānau 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 whānau and community.

    Key competencies :

  • Sound knowledge of IT solutions - MS Office, Sharepoint and others
