We run community programs and services that provide support especially to our older peoples, those living with disability or those seeking support for mental health.
We also offer shared management services to a number of smaller groups and trusts and have a history of strong Pacific community and health sector engagement.
Since 2009, we have been fully accredited with Telarc SAI QHNZ against the EQUIP4 Standards.
We want to support Pacific older people, people living with disability and/or mental illness to pursue their lifestyle choices.
Our programmes aim to encourage families and communities as a whole to respect, promote and safeguard the rights of our service users within the health and disability sector.
We are always striving to find innovative and creative ways to lead the on-going development of health and disability support services for Pacific people.
We aim to promote non-discriminatory practices and to bring positive change to the lives of our service users.
