NZ Care and Geneva Community Living have come together to form NZ Community Living, an organisation dedicated to supporting people with disabilities in New Zealand. Our Disability Support Services reflect our belief that all New Zealanders deserve to live fully, have equal opportunities, and achieve their ambitions.

NZ Community Living provides a diverse range of support services for people with disability and their whānau.

We are committed to ensuring our services are delivered to Māori in a manner that recognises and respects Māori values and beliefs. As an organisation we recognise our obligation to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and acknowledge Māori as tangata whenua who have unique values, social structures and worldviews.
We work with a range of partners in local and central Government, public and private sector agencies and community groups to advise on delivering effective and efficient disability support now and in the future.
