"Even though it’s over and even when I wasn’t there I still had the support, and everyone was and is still there for me. I expected it just to be during course hours but it was so much more than that and that meant a lot to know that I was actually cared about."

Help us build New Zealand’s first truly accessible tiny home. St John of God Halswell supports around 60 people living with physical and neurological disability. Our goal-oriented model of care calls upon our service to provide more choice and options such as increasing the availability of independent living units on site.
The development of a 50m2 accessible living unit onsite at St John of God Halswell will increase choice in our suite of accommodation options as well as provide an independent living unit backed by the strong clinical care and rehabilitation and therapy programme at our service.
We go the extra mile for people to help support a life that is enriching, enabling and self-directed. St John of God Halswell supports people living with disability through our unique person-centred Model of Care known as “My Life“. This calls upon our organisation and clinical services to provide supportive and enabling care where people can live and experience life.
As a result of our strong clinical care and service delivery programme, The Southern Region of our Health and Ability Services Division operates at close to full capacity and has a consistent waiting
list for care.
The 271 people in New Zealand who work collaboratively and with commitment to Mission and Values are the true treasure or taonga of our service. We see our role in the Board as supporting each individual’s skills and capacity to deliver upon need in our communities, as we work to continue the healing mission of Jesus Christ.
Our founder, born João Duarte Cidade and canonised as St John of God, shone a light of service for vulnerable people that has illuminated a path for countless people for more than 500 years. As we walk forward on this path together we take heed of his call to continually do better for people in need.
I am proud that the quality of care that we deliver is being set and maintained at such a high level. Our audit processes across Health and Ability Services and Community, Youth and Child Services give us ongoing confidence in promoting our work at the highest levels of the community and government, including the most vulnerable in society.
We are also proud that our services continue to work creatively and in partnership with others, to extend and improve care so that the person remains at the very centre of our approach.
I would like to acknowledge Steve Berry and his team for their exceptional leadership of the organisation; the board for their support, wisdom and guidance; our residents and clients who we serve and give us purpose; our wonderful committed caregivers and all who support us. Thank you in responding to our Mission and your ongoing support for and commitment to our work.
Ngā mihi maioha,
More than 250 people come together every day at St John of God Hauora Trust in the service of improving life and enhancing opportunity for the people who access our services. Each one of our caregivers in the course of that work, give living testament to the five values that bring us together for a common purpose: manaakitanga (hospitality), aroha (compassion), whakaute (respect), tika (justice) and hiranga (excellence).

St John of God Halswell is situated in the South-West of Christchurch with substantial grounds and gardens surrounding the facility. The main residential care facility is equipped with modern rehabilitation and therapy facilities known as The Granada Centre. This site provides ample opportunity for the installation of accessible housing units to support our capacity to deliver upon unmet need. A 50m2 tiny home could be located in a number of sites within the Grounds and all will have access to facilities and support as part of our Health and Ability Services Division.
