Enrich+ supports individuals to have a ‘life like any other’. Through education, employment and empowerment, we help each person to be a real part of the communities of their choice.
These paths of discovery (ngā ara whakahura) are about enabling the person to be in control of their own life. Our involvement may be very short term, or in some instances, may be over a number of years, depending on the person’s situation.
- Our Employment team support people into paid work, whether they are facing challenges relating to a disability or following an accident. We help them to identify their dreams and goals around work, and then agree on a plan to achieve sustainable mainstream employment.
- Our Empowerment team support people to have the life that they want. We assist people with a disability to develop the connections, relationships, and every day skills they need to have ‘a life like any other’ in the community of their choice. The support we offer is flexible and organised to make sure people have choices and they are in control of what they are doing.
- Our Enrich+ Spectrum Energy team support individuals on the autism spectrum, their families and whanau, through providing supportive environments and opportunities to gain confidence, practice social and life skills and achieve positive school experiences.
Through building natural supports and relationships, each person’s strengths and contribution to society are recognised and valued.
We incorporate Tikanga best practice into our day-to-day work and support, and aim to help each person to feel comfortable with a bicultural approach. We welcome individuals and their whānau, and respect their identity, whatever their culture.
