Working with Families
Supporting families to be able to participate fully with the new system of Mana Whaikaha is important to us.
Mana Whaikaha is the new way of funding support for disabled people in the MidCentral DHB.

Based on the principles of Enabling Good Lives, Mana Waikaha is a prototype of a transformed disablity support system. If you would like to find out more, click here.

With Mana Whaikaha is the opportunity for families to apply for funding so they can participate in training or learning events that will help them increase their capacity to engage with the new system.

Project Happen has already worked with some families in this capacity, running workshops that have helped parents to feel more confident about representing their children within the new system.

Because Project Happen is an independent organisation, we are able to give you the benefit of all that we have learned - both from service-land, funding systems and families - with no 'hidden agendas'.

At present our focus is on assisting people to understand what "a good life" means. The words are used a lot, but what do they actually mean on a day to day basis? We need to work this out because a bit part of funding is based on supporting a person's 'good life'. We have a process that can help you work out what a 'good life' looks like for your family and your family members.

We also have a workshop (3 hours) called BRAVE conversations. This workshop helps you to plan for conversations that you usually might avoid because they're uncomfortable. We think BRAVE conversations are the first step in self-advocacy.
