The Trust’s main aim is to ensure that a disabled person has the maximum opportunity to increase their independence. The Trust provides information, advice and support relating to housing and accessibility issues.
Residential housing is the primary objective of the trust and the principal service offered. We provide fully accessible homes at affordable rents. When we are not able to offer one of the Trust’s homes, we work with prospective tenants to link them with other alternative accessible housing, via other housing providers.
We can provide information as to universal accessible design, including plans, which utilise the barrier-free standards. We can also assist with information about accessible modifications within the home. This has also included building accessible homes on Maori land and the unique challenges that this involves.
