About Spectrum Care (Te Wai Kahukura Atawhai)

Spectrum Care is an independent charitable trust that provides services for children, young people and adults with disabilities and their families.

These services are accessed via NASC in Auckland and Hamilton.

Our vision is ‘people with disabilities living great lives’

Our services include 24-hour support for people living in residential homes throughout the Auckland and Waikato regions, respite care for adults in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty, and respite care for children in Auckland.

Spectrum Care also offers specialised Home Support, Behaviour Support and Aspirations services for people in the greater Auckland region, along with a recently launched School Holiday Programme of activities for children.

As an organisation, we believe in providing person-centred services and options that focus on individual needs.

All our services support people to identify their personal goals and aspirations. These are developed into a personalised and achievable ‘Outcomes’ plan, which supports our service users to achieve their immediate and lifelong objectives.

Spectrum Care supports the principles of the New Zealand Disability Strategy and places great emphasis on the worth of the individual, personal growth and the provision of holistic support for people with disabilities.

Open two-way communication and the development of community partnerships are integral to Spectrum Care’s philosophy.
