Description

CBCT offers a supported living service that works alongside disabled people 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.  In Dunedin you will have been referred to CBCT by Access Ability. 

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

A Co-ordinator and/or Support Worker will work alongside the person, and if appropriate their family/whanau, 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.

Some of the things your community Support Worker might do are:

  • Provide you with information about existing services available to you within the community.
  • Support you to use community facilities.
  • Help you develop new skills. For example cooking and shopping.
  • Liaise with other health professionals involved in your support.
  • Support you to achieve your goals.
  • Work professionally and confidentially.
  • Value your individuality.
  • Work creatively and with flexibility.
  • Build upon your strengths
