CCS Disability Action
CCS Disability Action’s vision is to see every disabled person included in the life of their family and community. As well as providing direct support and advocacy, we have a wider role in shaping society’s attitudes towards people with a disability.
Our Vision Te Puāwaitanga
We have been working with disabled people and their families since 1935 and are now at the forefront of service provision, advocacy and information sharing in the disability sector New Zealand-wide. Our people are professional, innovative, dedicated and knowledgeable. We hold ourselves to the highest possible ethical and professional standards and are known for our partnership approach to support.
We partner with disabled people, their families and whānau to enable them to have choice and control in their lives. We also work with communities, family members, friends, Hapu, Iwi, educators, health, social services, business, employers, councils, Government, community agencies, community groups and the public to identify and remove barriers that prevent people from achieving their goals.
We deliver specific services through our branches located nationwide. The availability will vary depending on where you live and many have specific eligibility criteria. We can often offer support that sits ‘outside’ the work that we are funded to deliver. So, get in touch by clicking on your local branch on our website to discuss your specific needs. Working outside of the box is something we do best!
Disability Advisory Group needs more committee members we need some community members to advice on issues affecting crippled children , the position requires committee members to interact with their local councils and Government and to provide polite but firm advise to councils, our online group wants to supplement traditional Council Disability Advisory Groups. We want to give our advise directly to councils and Government as well as to the council disability advisory groups.
We want to allow the public to take part, I have great concerns about the current council model of having closed disability advisory groups, this allows councils the chance to manipulate people into accepting minimal outcome which may endanger the disabled community while saving council a few dollars
