Non – Clinical Day Programmes model of care

As part of implementing Time for Change Te Hurihanga, Te Whatu Ora (Health New Zealand) is reviewing the community day programmes in Southern. To do so we need a Southern model of care”. A “model of care” is a way of describing what type of services we need and how they should look.

In February and March 2023, 16 listening sessions were held with people who use community day programmes. Each session was facilitated by a facilitator with lived experience and a Māori facilitator with cultural expertise. Other sessions were held with providers of community day programmes.  

Thank you to all of you that shared your thoughts and experiences, to help develop a model of care for day services that would meet your needs in the future.

During our listening sessions, we engaged and listened to almost 120 people. In addition, we received over 100 surveys (on-line and posted), as well as several written submissions.

The information gathered from this will be used in the drafting of the new model of care for day programmes in Southern.
