Health and Disability
Health and Disability is an area where we specialise and have extensive experience helping support people with their purpose in life. Everything we do is the same as with every other client we have, the process should and will always be the same.
We always ask, why should our service for people needing support be any different?
All our work is individualised to the client, and we work 1:1 with everyone.
We take into consideration the specific needs of each person and tailor their plan to include those needs.
Quite often, when we work with people, there is an element of 'getting ready for work.'
We already offer competitive packages, but in Health and Disability, we provide further discounts.
We have partnerships with specific organisations which are funded for long-term support.
Sharonn Pirie specialises in ASD and receives referrals from EGL, Schools, Clinical Psychologists and Counsellors.
How we will work
Operate with a clear set of principles and expected outcomes
Negotiate how they work on a person-by-person and/or family-by-family basis. Note: This will initially be informed by the disabled person’s plan.
Experience one monitoring and evaluation process that is developmental.
Operate according to a facilitation-based approach i.e. make it easier for individuals and families to achieve their goals by tailoring supports rather than the provision of a set range of service types.
Work to ensure community (generic) options are exhausted before specialist services are considered.
Operate with significantly reduced bureaucratic restrictions.
Experience the “system” as being supportive of innovation
Enabling Good Lives
Working to the Principles of Enabling Good Lives report, guiding us in everything we do:
Disabled people are in control of their lives.
Disabled people have supports that are tailored to their individual needs and goals, and that takes a whole life approach rather than being split across programmes.
Disabled people are supported to live everyday life in everyday places. They are regarded as citizens with opportunities for learning, employment, having a home and family, and social participation - like others at similar stages of life.
Disabled people are supported to access mainstream services before specialist disability services.
The abilities and contributions of disabled people and their families are recognised and respected.
Disabled people have supports that are simple to use and flexible.
Supports build and strengthen relationships between disabled people, their whānau, and community.
