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).


Our social networking centres are relaxed and comfortable places where people with an intellectual disability or recovering from a mental illness can take part in vocational, recreational and social activities – or just come in for support and company.

The Apartment in Dunedin provides a relaxed and comfortable place for adults recovering from mental illness, while The Link Centre in Balclutha provides support for adults and youth with intellectual disabilities and adults recovering from mental illness. The Armitage in South Dunedin supports adults and youth with intellectual disabilities.
