What we can offer
CCS Disability Action provides support, information and advocacy for whānau hauā, tamariki and taitamariki across Aotearoa. Our team offer a range of support services to meet the needs of your whānau using kaupapa Māori principles.
These services include:
- Good information. We support you to access information to provide a pathway of choices and opportunities.
- Community connections. We hold Karanga Maha hui on local accessible marae to hear the aspirations of whānau hauā.
- Navigating your options. We support your Mana Motuhake (having control of your destiny) to have the life you want.
- Advocacy. We support you to speak for yourself or your whānau or provide independent support with other organisations.
We partner with whānau across Aotearoa through hui called Karanga Maha – Many Voices. Karanga Maha offers you an opportunity to share aspirations, stories, life experiences and information underpinned by kaupapa Māori.
At the heart of CCS Disability Action’s vision is a society where all people are included in the life of their community and whānau. As part of our commitment to tangata whenua we have helped develop an Accessible Marae Toolkit, to help kaumatua and disabled whānau remain connected to their marae. We also work with hapū and iwi to identify and remove barriers that prevent people from achieving their goals.
