Ngā Kete Mātauranga Pounamu Charitable Trust offers the S.O.A.R. (Securing Our Aspirational Realities) programme providing information, access and advocacy.
S.O.A.R. is a programme aimed to better understand and raise awareness and knowledge around working alongside whānau with disabilities and to appreciate more fully the service options and needs they have to live full, enriched lives.
The SOAR whānau group developed a booklet reflecting our views and opinions for employers.
Everyone wants to feel like they have a sense of belonging and purpose in their lives, and we believe it is important that everyone, no matter what disability they may have, should be given a fair go.
We want employers to embrace us as they would anyone else, to be open-minded, to listen, to understand, and to support and trust. Most importantly, we do not wish to be treated differently to anyone else.
We want all people to be able to take flight and SOAR!
We are excited to bring you an 11-part video series from members of our SOAR group discussing how they live their best lives with a disability.
S.O.A.R. With Jack is a weekly radio show on Radio Southland 96.4 FM. The show airs at 12.10pm every Wednesday and covers disability issues through Jack's interviews with local families, agencies, and individuals who help raise disability awareness.
