Established in 1974, we now manage over $150 million of revenue and government funds and employ 111 staff.
In 2017, we provided government-funded disability equipment and support services to 75,578 New Zealanders. These services included:
- 92,020 items of equipment ($26 million spend)
- 25,955 subsidies for children’s spectacles
- 21,041 hearing aid payments
- 3845 housing modifications
- 1632 needs assessment and service coordination (NASC) services.
In providing access to such services, we help people to remain with their families and stay connected with their communities and the natural supports that those communities offer.
