The funding we receive allows us to operate at a ratio of 10 disabled users to one staff member. But our goal is to run a full-time programme for all participants, to more easily integrate them into society. To do this we need to operate at a ratio of 5:1.
We need volunteers to help our highly trained staff in our Community Participation area, on a half-day basis; 9am – 12pm or 12pm – 3pm. Volunteering can be completed on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. We also need volunteers to help us deliver our Good Purpose Kitchen products. If you can help, you will need a current full New Zealand driver's license.
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 enjoy swimming activity and Maori language teaching. I learn things here and I like to help everyone.
I like the people here: Gemma, Sheenal, Mark, John.
I like working at attainable because I enjoy doing different jobs. I like the people here and many of them are my friends.
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.
