Welcome to DRC Southland's website! This is where you will find information about who we are, what we do and the latest news in the health and disability sector, both here in Southland, nationally and internationally.
We came from small beginnings in 1992. Over the following years we provided needs assessment and service co-ordination services and home support services. We also provided the best, most cost effective, equipment and daily living products through our equipment shop. A strong dedicated team of staff ensured that people who came to us for information, resources and support gained the outcomes they desired.
This proud tradition continues today. We still provide information on anything and everything to do with disability, health and ageing. We still provide equipment and products at very reasonable prices. We provide the Hospital Courtesy Van Service to ensure people get to vital outpatient appointments. We are also a Total Mobility agency, ensuring that people who need assistance with transport receive discounted taxi fares - contact us at 214 5000 to book an assessment today!
We have always involved people with disabilities in the running of our services and this has helped shape DRC Southland into a 'consumer friendly' organisation. We network with many other health, disability and social service providers because it is vital that everyone works together to ensure we provide the right services, at the right time, in the right places without duplication or confusion.
We will continue to grow in response to the needs of our communities in Southland, including Gore, Te Anau, Queenstown, Stewart Island and all other localities in our beautiful province.
