PACT West Coast Charity Profile
PACT West Coast was established in 1999 following the deinstitutionalisation process from Seaview Psychiatric Hospital, when people were given the opportunity to live in a community setting. The service currently supports people with an intellectual disability or people recovering from mental illness.
Pact has always changed and adapted to meet the needs of the communities it supports and we see that continuing. We would like to expand our current support beyond what we provide now to anyone who has support needs - regardless of why they have those needs. Our model of support in the community could apply to a wide range of people and we plan to explore such services further in 2008 and beyond. Part of this will include looking at new revenue streams other than the current district health boards, and Ministries of Health and Social Development. It could include local government, business, philanthropy and fee-paying clients.
