About Support Net

Support services for people with disabilities (of all ages) in the Bay of Plenty District Health Board area are accessed through Support Net. Support services for people aged under 65 with a disability in the Lakes DHB area are also accessed through Support Net.

Support Net is a Needs Assessment and Service Coordination Service (NASC) for people with disabilities or older people with health and disability related needs. We aim to support those people who are eligible to receive services to live as independently as possible in their home and community.

NASC is the first step for a person to get Government-funded support services. Services may include help with personal support, meals, household management, carer support, day programmes, and the support provided by rest homes and private hospitals. 

Support Net has three main roles:

  • Facilitate Needs Assessment
  • Service planning and coordination
  • Resource allocation within a defined budget 


Support Net provides NASC services for two funding organisations:

1. The Ministry of Health for people with long term impairment / disability needs who meet the Ministry of Health eligibility criteria and are aged under 65 years. We provide these services in the Bay of Plenty and Lakes District Health Board's areas.

2. The Bay of Plenty District Health Board for people (of all ages) with long term chronic health needs or who are aged over the age of 65 years and have long term disability or age related health needs. We provide these services in the Bay of Plenty District Health Board area.
