Description

CBCT offers a supported living service that works alongside people with disabilities allowing them to live independently in the community by providing support in those areas of their life where help is needed. This service is available to people over the age of 17 who meet the Ministry of Health’s disability support services eligibility criteria. Referral has to coma via Access Ability.

CBCT offers a creative, responsive and flexible person-centred approach to this support.

A Support Worker will work alongside the person and, if appropriate, their family/whānau, to identify areas for support which will be written into a plan. This plan will identify the goals they hope to achieve during their time in the service and will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Support Workers work alongside service users to assist them in achieving their goals, including things such as:

  • Sharing information about services and resources available.
  • Identifying and getting involved with activities that are meaningful.
  • Learning new coping skills.
  • Helping with planning, daily living skills and goals.
  • Providing support to access and attend appointments
