Nau Mai Haere Mai - Welcome to NorthAble
NorthAble Matapuna Hauora is Northland's primary Disability Resource Centre and has been serving local communities since 25th June 1990.
With an office in Whangarei, a mobile van service, and a NorthAble agency at Far-North Pharmacy in Kaitaia, NorthAble provides disability support and information in the Whangarei, Mid-Far North and Kaipara Districts.
We offer multiple services and supports, from LYNKZ, our community participation programme, to transition services, needs assessment, and our Equipment Plus store.
NorthAble EQ+ stocks a wide range of daily living aids, scooters, lift chairs, bathroom equipment and much more. We also have hire equipment available as well as a mobile van service operating in the Kaipara, Kawakawa/Kaikohe, Kerikeri, Kaitaia, and Bream Bay regions.
Northable also delivers presentations to local community groups and resthomes in addition to our recently launched Disability Awareness Workshops, held throughout Northland - if you would like to find out more, give us a call or pop on down to NorthAble.
