My Place Aotearoa

My Place Aotearoa is a newly established provider of individualised and flexible supports to people with disability and their whānau/families with the vision of being fully inclusive. This means working in partnership with people with disability and their whānau/family to live in their own home and to receive supports that meet their individual needs and preferences from people that they choose and trust.
My Place Aotearoa believes that family/whānau are the foundation of communities and can only thrive if they are connected to, are valued by and have a sense of belonging in their own communities. My Place Aotearoa’s name was purposely selected to reflect the very personalised, client-controlled approach: individuals standing in their own power, in their own wisdom.
My Place Aotearoa will support people who have been referred to the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) ‘Living my Life’ service in the wider Auckland area, Waikato and the Bay of Plenty. The areas of support that My Place Aotearoa will provide under this service are called ‘Tailored Supports’ and ‘Coaching to Self-Manage’. My Place Aotearoa is committed to work in partnership with each person with disability to plan and receive supports that meet their individual needs and preferences from people that they choose and trust. My Place Aotearoa does not provide any group home, day centre or other congregate care services.
