Supported accommodation
(mental health, intellectual disability, physical disability)

Our supported accommodation services are for people who can benefit from staff support in a home with other flatmates or in their own flat. We have a variety of homes (everything from one-bedroom flats to family-style homes) with staffing to suit people’s needs (eg daytime staffing, overnight staffing).

We support clients with daily living skills, setting and reaching goals and being as independent as possible – whether that’s learning new skills in the home or working toward living more independently.

We also have a specialised Maori service, Miringa Whakaaro, in Dunedin and child and youth services in Invercargill and Dunedin.

planned and crisis respite
(MENTAL HEALTH)

People with mental health issues and/or disability who live independently in the community sometimes need time out. Planned and crisis respite care is provided in a home-like settings, providing a safe place to de-stress. Where there is a crisis situation, respite can be provided at short notice. We also provide respite for people who are eligible for carer support.

Our housing coordination service helps people whose living environment is contributing to mental illness. Our staff can research options, which may include Pact offerings, or just broker a conversation with a private landlord.


It can be complex to explain how referrals are made to Pact so please get in touch if you want to find out how to access our services. We’ll bend over backwards to help you. Even if you are not eligible for government-funded Pact support, we have other options, including paying for Pact services privately (see individually-funded services) and our affiliated private service, (see Boost Personal Support Services).

“I would have given up on myself if I hadn’t had [Pact’s] support. I was going down a big, long, empty well. Now I’m coming up and keeping on level ground.”
