Welcome to the Westport branch

Tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou, tēnā koutou katoa.

If you live in or near Westport, please contact us for support, advice and information relating to disability. Our services are community based and we have staff providing a variety of services for disabled people and their family and whānau and the wider community.

We offer a range of services for disabled people and their family and whānau including access to our modern well-equipped holiday home in Christchurch and Paroa on the West Coast. All our support services (with the exception of Mobility Parking) are free.

There are a number of ways you can access them. While some of our services may need a referral and not all the services offered by CCS Disability Action are available from our branch, please get in touch with us directly to discuss your needs and what we can offer you.

You could also contact your GP or Life Links as they can assess your needs and connect you with support providers.

Andrew Kidd

Andrew is a Chartered Accountant at Nexia New Zealand in Christchurch with over 10 years’ experience. In mid-2016, Andrew was introduced to CCS Disability Action by his mentor and CCS Disability Action Life Member Michael Keyse and has been a part of the Canterbury West Coast branch Local Executive Committee since.

Andrew enjoys being able to give back to CCS Disability Action and the community through his experience and knowledge obtained in practice. He sees CCS Disability Action playing an important role in the disability sector, particularly advocating for both the rights and needs of those living with disabilities and the Support Workers who support them. A highlight of Andrew’s time on the LEC to date has been attending the graduation ceremony for Project Search in its first year.
