At Choices NZ we are committed to helping people enjoy the most fulfilling, independent life possible and achieve the goals they set themselves through their personal plans.

Choices NZ was established with input from New Zealanders with disabilities, their families and providers of support services to give people greater choice and control over the services they can access and flexibility over the providers they choose.

Beginning your journey with Choices NZ starts with creating your personal plan.

Talk to your friends, family, whānau – and us – about what you may need and would like in your personal plan – remember, you can access our expert advice at any time.
You may also be talking with a Needs Assessment Coordination Service, a connector or person at the Ministry of Social Development or ACC about what you are entitled to.
We will work with you throughout so that you can have real confidence in every choice you make.
