As the lead consultants within New Zealand’s individualised funding pilots, we also support the development of cross-agency initiatives to provide integrated support for people with disabilities. In Australia, we have worked with local networks providing support and navigation for people with psychosocial disabilities and have assisted the National Disability Insurance Agency in the design of individualised packages that integrate mental health and social support.

We firmly believe good systems which support choice and quality care, not only ensure optimal outcomes for individuals and their families, but are also the most cost-effective for Governments over the long term.
