Our clients are some of ACC’s most high needs clients living in the community.
Presently we have clients in Northland, Auckland and Wellington. Although their injuries are unique and complex in their own way the commonality between them all is the amazing support and encouragement they receive from their families and friends.
Prior to Peter’s accident he was an elite athlete competing internationally in boxing and outrigger canoeing. To help Peter achieve his goals we have developed a programme that incorporates those activities he was passionate about prior to his accident. This is the same philosphy we apply to the development of all our client programmes.
Here are pictures of Peter at the Waka Ama nationals in 2009 at Lake Karapiro. One of his goals was to re-establish his club Pineula which has not competed since his accident six years ago. This collection of pictures shows Peter with some of his team Pineula who won the gold medal in the Open Men’s 500 metres, silver in the double hull and bronze in the Open Men’s 15oo meters.
Our other clients are equally as inspirational and motivated as Peter. They are all supported by fantastic teams made up of family, friends and home based support coordinators.
