Community day services help disabled adults who can’t find work to take part in their community and improve their personal skills by providing access to regular meaningful social contact and stimulating activities.
The services will include a range of activities depending on the provider, and what you’re interested in and able to do. Activities may include:
You can go to day services as well as getting other Ministry-funded support services.
To get into a community day programme, you’ll need to be assessed by a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination organisation (NASC). The NASC works out with you how many sessions (half days) you can use each week. The maximum is 10 half days per week.
When you talk to your NASC, they’ll tell you about the programmes in your area, and if there are any vacancies with Ministry of Social Development-funded providers.
