Eligibility for support

Support Net is obliged to establish if people meet criteria to be eligible to receive NASC services. Staff will talk to about this and will work with you to find out about your abilities, resources, goals and needs. After an assessment has taken place we will help you to identify which of these needs are the most important and work with you to plan what supports or services are available to help you. This also includes the supports that are available to you from family, friends and community contacts.

Support Net will identify with you which supports you are eligible for and we will then facilitate the commencement of these services and supports.

If funded services are required these services are often delivered by provider organisations contracted by the Bay of Plenty District Health Board or the Ministry of Health. These services could include help in the home, help with personal care, respite, support for living independently and others such as individualised funding arrangements.
