CBCT offers a supported living service that works alongside disabled people to live independently in the community by providing support in those areas of their life where help is needed.
This service is available to people over the age of 17 who meet the Ministry of Health’s disability support services eligibility criteria. In Dunedin you will have been referred to CBCT by Access Ability.
CBCT offers creative, responsive and flexible person centred approach to this support.
A Co-ordinator and/or Support Worker will work alongside the person, and if appropriate their family/whanau, to identify areas for support which will be written into a Plan. This plan will identify the goals they hope to achieve during their time in the service and will be reviewed on a regular basis.

Facility Based Respite
Corstorphine Baptist Community Trust is delivering respite services for eligible child and youth who are funded by Disability Support Services (DSS) or Ministry for Children Oranga Tamariki (MCOT). This facility has the capacity for four people to stay and is staffed 24 hours a day (including a sleepover). We also have a vehicle and can take people to their school or usual day time activity if needed.
Sometimes you need a break from each other and CBCT provides an environment for this to happen.
