The Hawksbury Community Living Trust was initially set up in 1992 to provide quality residential support for people with intellectual disabilities. The service opened its first home in Dunedin in April 1992 and has since opened 10 further homes in Dunedin and Christchurch.
The majority of the people we support initially moved from instituitional care to a more independant environment with a community focus. New referrals are now received from families and other community based organisations who are currently providing this support.
In October 2004, Hawksbury Trust achieved Certification under the Health and Disability Sector (Safety) Standards. This Certification monitors our committment to the ongoing support Hawksbury Trust offers our residents, their family and whanau and staff.
