About us

At Enrich+, we believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life like any other.

Through education, employment and empowerment, we support and encourage individuals living with disabilities, autism and neurodiversity to live the life they choose and to be a real part of their communities.

We’re committed to providing meaningful and unique support programmes for people of all ages to develop the skills and abilities they want and need to gain independence, while working with their whanau and community to enhance support networks.

We love what we do, which is why we’ll be at your side every step of the way!

Appreciating diversity : Whakamiha kanorau 

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.

Our management team

Our role

At Enrich+, we recognise and value people’s strengths and contributions to society. By supporting individuals and their whānau through the early years, childhood, teen years and adult life, we ensure individuals have the best foundation on which to develop and use their strengths and contributions in their communities.

The Enrich+ team sets itself high standards and expectations, with our innovative staff attending regular training and ongoing education to best meet the needs of people accessing our services.

Our involvement may be short term or over many years, depending on a person’s situation.

We incorporate Tikanga best practice into our day-to-day work and support. We have a Kaumātua, Kuia and an in-house Māori Ropu Kaitohutohu (Kua Puāwai Ki Te Ao) to help guide our team in delivering cultural services to individuals and their whānau.

Kua Puāwai Ki Te Ao also provides individuals, staff and organisation support on Māori issues.

Whakamārama Marae is recognised as the Marae for Enrich+, and we have enjoyed a 20-plus-year partnership. Individuals and staff are welcomed to Enrich+ with a pōwhiri at Whakamārama Marae, and services are delivered at the Marae throughout the year.

Our disabilities, autism and neurodiversity services are available across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions, with offices in Te Awamutu, Hamilton, Tauranga and Taumarunui.
