Extraordinary times mean giving extra. Help us go the extra mile.
Disabled people are resourceful and used to finding work-arounds to manage day to day, giving them some useful skills to call on in facing the COVID-19 crisis. Many disabled people are working right now on the front line in a variety of essential roles. But many are also isolated in their homes dependent on services and support that CCS Disability Action is providing.
During this crisis we have continued to provide in-home help such as assistance with showering, house cleaning, grocery and pharmaceutical shopping, support with accessing medical advice, information and advocacy.
We have provided physically isolated people with the means to connect to family, friends and community through internet connections, devices such as iPads, and increased data on their phones ensuring that they are not ever alone.
In instances where we cannot visit in person we have stayed in touch by phone, dropped groceries and medicines at the door and ensured vulnerable people receive everything they need to carry on. In order to keep providing support for disabled people at this time, we have had to be flexible, creative and push ourselves to go the extra mile. Especially our wonderful front line staff.
Extraordinary times mean giving extra and we are up for it. Will you help us go that extra mile?
We work to make a real and positive difference in the lives of disabled people, their families and whānau across the country. Unfortunately, there is often a gap between the support people really need and the funding that is available to them and that is where we need your help.
We believe it’s a genuine privilege to be let into people’s lives. To stay true to our vision and values, simply ticking boxes is not enough. This means we regularly support people who would otherwise fall through the cracks.
Whether you donate a little or a lot, you will contribute to great outcomes for disabled people in New Zealand.
There are a number of ways you can donate to us, depending on what suits you best. You can choose to donate to our work nationally or to your nearest branch.
