Enabling Good Lives and Mana Whaikaha
Enabling Good Lives (EGL) is a new approach to supporting people with disabilities that offers greater choice and control over the support you receive.
MidCentral DHB region
If you live in the MidCentral DHB region you may be able to use Mana Whaikaha, which is the EGL prototype currently offered in that area.
Christchurch and Waikato
There are also EGL programmes in the Christchurch and Waikato areas.
Are you already using Mana Whaikaha or EGL?
If you are already using Mana Whaikaha or EGL, then come and talk to us. We want to know about your interests, the activities you want to do and how you want to live your life. This could include living options, employment or recreational activities.
Additionally, you can phone 0800 693 342 to connect to your nearest centre or visit the NZ Federation of Disability Information Centres website for contact details.
