Description

Mana Whaikaha is a disability support system which has been co -designed with disabled people and whānau, and others in the disability sector.

Available to people in the MidCentral region, we use an Enabling Good Lives approach and offer you and your whānau more choice and control over your supports.

Through this approach our Kaitūhono/Connectors work alongside disabled people and whānau in their homes, schools and communities to build an aspirational good life plan, by connecting with the right people and resources.

Through Enable New Zealand we can also assist you to obtain equipment to help with your daily activities.

Staff

Our Staff consists of Kaitūhono/Connectors who are allies for disabled people, tangata whaikaha Māori and whānau as they build relationships and achieve ordinary life outcomes.

Ages

Child / Tamariki, Youth / Rangatahi, Adult / Pakeke

Advocacy

Self advocacy is the ability to speak up for yourself and the things that are important to you. Sometimes disabled people need advocacy support - this is usually a family member or friend, but you can also choose to access a service that provides advocacy.
