Disability Support

Lifewise Disability Support 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. Get in touch today to speak with us about how you can get involved.

Individualised Funding gives you choices

Individualised Funding gives people more control over their disability 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 plan how you want to use your funding; there are many creative ways to maintain the support you need.

If you 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 Te Whatu Ora Auckland district, 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 discuss the information. You can reach us at 09 623 7631 and ask to speak to someone on the Disability Team.

You can download our presentation, which outlines how Individualised Funding works.

“It is very convenient that Lifewise is there to support us on this journey. This extra support means that my life has now become less stressful and my health has also improved.”
