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).


We provide help for adults, who are living in the community and who have mental illness or an intellectual disability. We support people to reach their goals, whether that is learning a new daily living skill, tapping into social networks in the community, assisting with housing, or exploring work or study options. People set the goal - we are there to help.

We also offer specialist Maori community support in Dunedin and Pacific community support in Wellington.
