We support individuals and their whānau through the early years, childhood, teen years and adult life. Our involvement may be short term or may be over a number of years, depending on your situation.
The Enrich+ team sets high standards and expectations. Staff are innovative, attend regular training and ongoing education to best meet your needs. We work with you to identify your goals – which then form the foundation of your unique support programme within your community.
Your strengths and contributions to society are recognised and valued at Enrich+.
We incorporate Tikanga best practice into our day to day work and support. We have a Kaumātua, Kuia and an in-house Kaitohutohu (Cultural Advisor) to help guide our team in delivering cultural services for you and your whānau.
We also have a Māori employee rōpū, Kua Puāwai Ki Te Ao that provides you and our staff support on issues Māori.
Whakamārama Marae is recognised as the Marae for Enrich+, and we have been in partnership with the Marae for 18 years now. You are welcomed to Enrich+ with a pōwhiri at Whakamārama Marae, and through the year services are delivered at the Marae.
Enrich+ works alongside individuals to develop their skills and abilities and enhance inclusion in the communities of their choice.
Ka mahi ā Enrich+ ki te taha o ngā hunga kia whakapakari ai ā rātou pūmanawa i roto i te iwi kāinga ō rātou kowhiritanga.
A life like any other.
He oranga pērā tonu ki ētahi.
Enrich+ educate and support people with the central purpose of enriching their lives. How we are of service is guided and influenced by their dreams and goals, and the choices they make.
Enrich+ endorse a culture of cooperation and helpfulness with each other, the people we serve, their whānau and the wider community.
Enrich+ employees conduct themselves with integrity and commitment to their work; role modelling positive behaviours through continued professional development and reflective practices.
Like the weaving of harakeke, bi-cultural practices are woven into the fabric of Enrich+ to continually reinforce the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi – Partnership, Protection, and Participation. We embrace a culturally diverse community and welcome diversity in all its forms.
Enrich+ takes pride in being a leader of excellence and innovative practices. We strive to continually excel.
Enrich+ are committed to the values and principles of the Supported Employment Practice Guidelines:
Disabled people are in control of their lives
Invest in whānau to support them; to be aspirational for their disabled child; to build community and natural supports; and to support disabled children to become independent, rather than waiting for a crisis before support is available
Disabled people have supports that are tailored to their individual needs and goals, and that take a whole life approach rather than being split across programmes
Disabled people are supported to live an everyday life in everyday places; and are regarded as citizens with opportunities for learning, employment, having a home and family, and social participation - like others at similar stages of life
Disabled people are supported to access mainstream services before specialist disability services
The abilities and contributions of disabled people and their families are recognised and respected
Disabled people have supports that are simple to use and flexible
Supports build and strengthen relationships between disabled people, their whānau and community
