We recently put in an application to the Lion Foundation for new IPads and were successful in being granted $7000. This has allowed us to buy10 new IPads which is spread across our three centres.
IPads are proving to be very popular and user friendly for the people we support. There portability the use of wide range of educational and communication apps has opened up endless opportunities that were previously either unavailable or very expensive.
I would like to thank the Lion foundation for their generous grant and the difference this will make too the lives of the people we support.

Saint Johns Ambulance Visit

As part of our community awareness we recently had a visit from the St Johns ambulance team
Everyone enjoyed going through the ambulance and getting a better understanding of what a great job the St Johns team do, some people even got to go for a ride.
We also got involved with support the awareness campaign for returned veteran's with doing 22 press ups in 22 days (See Video)

Big thanks to the St Johns team for making the time for the people at Arohanui.

Watch out soon for the fire brigade!!

Well everyone is back from their holidays and  enjoying the new programme that started at the end of January. Already there have been a number of fantastic outings enjoying everything the Bay of Plenty has to offer.
We welcome several new people to services and it seems the one thing they have in common is they have all moved to Tauranga  from Auckland and who can blame them for that!!
We continue to receive weekly enquires from people wanting to access the services of Arohanui and while funding can sometimes be an issue we are always happy to discuss the many options that are available.
What it does tell us  is that the  services we offer is what many families are seeking. If you are an individual, a family, or know of someone who is looking of a service please feel free to contact us to discuss the options.
