The Navigate service is a Regional Intellectual Disability Supported Accommodation Service (RIDSAS). We provide intensive rehabilitative support to people with intellectual disabilities who have complex behaviour and/or who may have offended.

Our focus is to support people to develop the practical skills needed to move forward in life. We provide a safe and supportive environment, and a comprehensive training pathway.

Intensive Support Services

NZCL provides Intensive Support Services for Children/Tamariki, Young people/Rangatahi and adults who present with high and complex needs that span health, disability and social issues. The Intensive Support framework ensures that services are developed to meet individual needs and manage risk.

This robust framework is designed to create a service that acknowledges and supports the specialised needs of the individual and is focused on a pathway and transition to independence in the community.
