NGO Mental Health & Addictions Service
Community Support Service
Community-based services provide flexible and mobile support services for people who are living independently, but not necessarily alone, in their community. The services are for people who require some additional support to remain actively involved with family/whānau, community living, education, employment and self-management of their wellbeing. The person is supported to determine their own needs and to retain or regain control of their own recovery process. Community Support Service staff provide assistance such as accessing appropriate community services and managing household tasks and general daily living activities. Where possible, people will be matched with an age, gender and culturally compatible support worker.
Community Support Work is a support service for people experiencing mental illness. Both Mainstream and Asian services are provided by trained Support Workers.
