Disability Support


Whānau Whānui in Whangārei supports whānau through a range of health, learning and safety focussed home visit programmes. To help whānau improve their circumstances and give their tamariki a better start in life.

Maiaorere Disabilities Support is a comprehensive whānau-driven service that helps people with disabilities to live full lives in their homes and communities.

This wrap-around service includes individual in-home support, weekly community activity programs and 24/7 care.

We have three community residential facilities located in Whangarei and Moerewa. They provide 24/7 care to whānau with a disability.

Our team can provide support and assist people with external and community referrals.

We can also refer people internally to ensure that they get the help and support they need to live a full and active life.
