Assisting Different Abilities Peoples Trust (ADAPT)

https://www.adapt.org.nz/

ADAPT strives to support developers and operators to deliver excellent lifestyle based outcomes to those with intellectual disabilities.
Our aspiration is to create new universal design led homes in co-living developments. We wish to create spaces that foster independence whilst using intuitive design to encourage connection with the community. We recognise that every one of us needs space to be alone but never lonely. A place to call home
A registered charitable trust, Assisting Different Abilities Peoples Trust (ADAPT), was born mid 2018. At inception ADAPT purchased two homes in Thames, which were already being used by ten individuals. Together with the assisted living service provider, ADAPT has been able to improve these homes and bring in universal design principles to ensure that they are more built for purpose- creating a more pleasant environment for the individuals living inside them.
