Independent Living Service
ILS is a not-for-profit, community focused organisation committed to making daily living easier for people with impairments, their families/whanau and support networks.
We achieve this with a team of skilled and knowledgeable Information and Equipment Consultants who have personal experience of disability, so they genuinely want to understand your needs and what it is you want to do.
Making daily living easier
Our vision is made possible by providing you with current information about support services, assistive products and general information so that you are able to make informed decisions about solutions that work for you to live the life you want.
Our information services are free and available for everyone.
ILS models the objectives of the New Zealand Disability Strategy at both our governance level and operationally.
Disability Advisory Group needs more committee members we need some community members to advice on issues affecting independent living, 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 and Government a few dollars
