Referral Process

It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services).

A NASC needs assessment is required for this service.


Our supported accommodation services are for people who can benefit from staff support in a home with other flatmates or in their own flat. We have a variety of homes (everything from one-bedroom flats to family-style homes) with staffing to suit people’s needs (eg daytime staffing, overnight staffing).

We support clients with daily living skills, setting and reaching goals and being as independent as possible – whether that’s learning new skills in the home or working toward living more independently.

Specialist Māori Supported Accommodation
We have specialist Māori supported accommodation services in Dunedin that support people recovering from mental illness and people with intellectual disabilities.

They draw their kawa from the Whanaungatanga best practice model, based in Tikanga Māori. From this sound foundation, there is a commitment to ensuring that tangata whānau are embraced, guided by the principles of Tika, Pono and Aroha.
