What is community participation?

Do you want to be involved with your community?

Do you want to make new friends and learn new skills?

Do you want to be more independent and make decisions about your life?

If you have answered YES to any of these questions then talk to us.

At the Manaaki Ability Trust we will work alongside you to realise your goals and to help enhance and foster your independence.


Goals could include:

  • To access community groups that are of interest to you
  • To learn how to catch a bus, read a timetable, purchase a snapper card
  • To find volunteer or paid work
  • To increase your fitness

We will work with you and your support networks including family/whānau, to write up a personal plan for your goals, aspirations and dreams.
