Established in 1982, St Chads works alongside people with disabilities to enable increased independence, choice, and meaningful community participation. We are all about improving outcomes for our clients and believe that the success of one person or group also benefits the whole community and makes it a better place to live, play and work.
Our approach is consistent with the New Zealand Disability Strategy which ‘recognises the equal right of all people with disabilities to live in the community with choices equal to any other’. St Chads also follows the Enabling Good Lives framework.
We currently serve almost 70 clients and employ 18 people who work around 9 FTE (full time equivalent) hours each week as well as utilising a volunteer team who provide another 1.5 FTE hours each week.
St Chads is a Registered Charitable Trust led by Centre Manager, Nicky Mayne, and governed by a Board of Trustees who meet monthly. The Chairperson of the Board is Ali Painter and members are Tess Thorne, Tups Wright, Ann-Elise Miles, and Roger Loveless.
