CCS Disability Action is committed to including all people within our communities; we highly value diversity and promote difference. We are seeking like-minded people to open their homes as caregivers alongside disabled people, in the Canterbury area.
Respite care is a short term stay for a child or young person, in your own home, at agreed times throughout the year. The support for this is reimbursed at a daily rate.
CCS Disability Action builds our work around three core documents; the UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, Te Tiriti o Waitangi and the NZ Disability Strategy. We work within a Human Rights framework and are an EEO employer meaning we make accommodation and openly encourage people with lived experience of disability to apply.
CCS Disability Action will:
- Work with you to establish the individual match that works best for you and your family.
- Ensure that all legal requirements are met.
- Provide you with training, practical support and ongoing information to ensure you are well equipped for the role.
- Coordinate any required disability related supports while the young person is in your care.
If you are interested in welcoming a young person into your home for short term care, call:
