Capital Support is a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination (NASC) agency that provides access to support services for people with disability related needs living in the Wellington, Porirua and Kapiti (up to PekaPeka) regions.
Support Assessment - is a process that helps people identify their disability support requirements. This involves a needs assessor meeting with a client, usually in their home, and completion of a Supported Needs Assessment Form. Support Assessment is necessary if you require access service coordination support and there is a need to access government funded services.
Service Coordination - is the process of selecting and organising the services required to meet the disability related needs that were identified during Support Assessment. This involves the development of a Support Plan which identifies what should happen to assist with maintaining or promoting client independence.
Capital Support has Maori and Pacific Needs Assessors/Service Coordinators who are available to work with Maori and Pacific clients.
