Community Living story
Our Story

New Zealand’s trusted provider.

NZCare and Geneva Community Living have come together to form NZCommunity Living, an organisation dedicated to supporting people with disabilities in New Zealand. 

Our Disability Support Services reflect our belief that all New Zealanders deserve to live fully, have equal opportunities, and achieve their ambitions.

That’s why everything we do is designed to enable people with disabilities to be part of their local community, connect with whānau and friends, and do the things they enjoy. We will work with you and whānau to provide support that is personalised, flexible and reflect the choices that you want to make in your life.

Our Philosophy Statement and mission

Amazing Support Workers

Making a difference in people's lives everyday


“Tena Koe, I just want to acknowledge you for the special work you do and the way you have worked with myself and my little whanau. You have made a difference in our lives. A big thank you to the team and for their support to my daughter especially ensuring her cultural needs are met and for having staff who understand Ngaio and upholding her Maori Culture. Kia koe, Mereti”

“Going to work every day to be given the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others really gives me a sense of purpose. I find the work environment both relaxed and flexible, and am part an awesome team of supportive and interesting people.”

“Building the relationships and seeing someone’s independence and confidence grow is so rewarding. There are challenging times, but it’s worth it.”
Support Worker
"I’ve always wanted to go flatting and live more independently. I did just that when I moved into a NZCommunity Living home! I still have some support, but I feel more independent, going on community outings, exercising more and eating healthier."
Person we support
"Thank you very much for your great leadership, sound advice, professional conduct, open door policy and prompt service. Thank you also for the 'community support survival kit' personally delivered to us. I often look at it and feel encouraged"
