The Disability Information & Equipment Centre provides information about disabilities and disability supports to the Kapiti area, while the mobile service extends this to the Wellington, Hutt Valley and Porirua areas.
We sell and hire a wide range of equipment to aid independent living. Experienced staff are able to advise customers on a range of disability queries; we provide assessments for the Total Mobility Scheme and give presentations to various groups and organisations.
Our Disability Awareness workshops have trained many people in our community, especially those working in frontline positions such as in libraries and aquatic centres. They have increased awareness of disabilities in our community. We also support groups such as the Accessibility Advisory Group and the Mobility Scooter Club.
The Centre is a pivotal part of the disability community and will celebrate it's 25 year anniversary in 2017.
