Support we can offer

We provide an holistic approach for the well-being of Maori with disabilities, whanau, hapu, and iwi:   

  • Through a Supported Lifestyles service that focusses on the needs of Maori with disabilities
  • By providing information and advocacy on disability issues
  • By providing a link to specialists and other service providers
  • By ensuring Maori whanau are well informed of developments and services provided by the Maori Unit

Our team will also liaise with other organisations including statutory organisations to ensure that they are providing good services to Maori.  

Te Whakaaheitanga Marae Accessibility Toolkit

Te Whakaaheitanga Marae Accessibility Toolkit (PDF 600KB) has been developed to provide basic advice for marae who are intending to do some building or renovations. The toolkit provides information to enable kaumatua and whanau with disabilities to be fully involved in the life of their marae. The working party who developed this resource included Bell Martin and Kevin Churchill from CCS Disability Action Waikato, as well as representatives from other Waikato based organisations. Kevin’s barrier-free auditing expertise weaves its way throughout the toolkit.
