Disability Support
Services

Lifewise Disability Services offer choices in support for people who live with a disability and have Individualised Funding. We work with you to keep it simple and help you make the most of your budget.

Individualised Funding gives you choices

Individualised Funding gives people more control over their support and flexibility about how and when their needs are met. It puts the decisions and control back in the hands of the person or family themselves.

We’ll help you get started

We help you to plan how you want to use your funding; there are lots of creative ways you can have the support you need.

If you do decide to employ a support worker, we’ll help you understand how to do this.

In Auckland, you may be able to access more support

If you live within the Auckland DHB catchment area, you may also be able to access our home-based support services for personal care, household management and respite care.

Our booklet is full of information

We’ve created an Introduction to Individualised Funding booklet. It has all the information you need to get started. We aim to keep Individualised Funding as simple as possible, so please feel free to call us if you’d like to talk through the information. You can reach Natalie on 09 632 6563 or Makasini on 021 247 3568.
