Community Support Work

Community Support WorkComcare’s Community Support Work offers assistance with the activities that form part of an individual’s daily life.  

Support Workers assist with areas such as financial management, relationship building with friends and family, taking first steps back to an active life and work, managing the demands of children and a home, developing workable routines around living and health care needs.

The range of work is broad and is developed through personalised planning based on supporting the individual to use their strengths to overcome barriers to their independence and autonomy.

A Continuing Support Service is available for people with long term support needs. Individuals receive ongoing support and guidance with life skills e.g. (budgeting, leisure/recreation, social skills, communication, conflict resolution, and personal hygiene) to ensure they can continue to live in their chosen environment and have the support to access the community activities of their choice.

Our community support services are fully mobile and provided in Christchurch urban areas and rural districts of Ashburton, Rangiora and North Canterbury, Selwyn and Banks Peninsula.
