Our Community Participation programme is designed to extend participants confidence and independence so that they can form and maintain relationships with groups and friends within the community.
When a service user completes school, their first experience with us is our Community Participation programme.
These are the programme’s founding principles:
To promote individual choice.
To encourage and enable full inclusion in society.
To provide support & guidance to participants accessing their community.
To empower participants so that they are included in society.

I like working at attainable because I enjoy doing different jobs. I like the people here and many of them are my friends.
If I didn’t work I would get bored staying at home. Attainable gives me a place to go. If I stay home I will eat and get fat.
I like the people here: Gemma, Sheenal, Mark, John.
I enjoy swimming activity and Maori language teaching. I learn things here and I like to help everyone.
Thank you to all the wonderful staff at Attainable. You have made this year so special for my brothers. I am truly grateful. For Scott especially, he loves his Monday workday in the factory and it has brought new friends and real meaning to his life.
