‘Allies’ was born out of a deep understanding that life which includes disability can be very challenging. In addition to the day to day reality, comes the many complex and confusing systems that we need to navigate for access to good education, work, friendships, support services and home. Navigating our way through all of this can at times bring out our less than best self. Being isolated, confused and disempowered, but knowing we must keep going, can make life feel like an ongoing battle.
At Allies, we understand these experiences. We want you to know that you are not alone and that there are practical and functional actions that can be taken to turn the tide towards a good life for yourself and your family members. We have supported hundreds of people (individuals, families / whānau and organisations) to create a positive vision for their future, identity and obtain the resources necessary and then turn this into reality.
