People with disabilities deserve to live a life filled with choice, control and connection. Community Living provides support to help make this possible.
We believe it’s important not just to say this, but to reflect it in everything we do. One of the best ways to show our commitment is through a rigorous process of accreditation. To do this we turned to the internationally recognised Council of Quality and Leadership (CQL).
Community Living is now the first organisation in New Zealand to achieve this CQL accreditation.
Our review focussed on the following key area:
- Basic Assurances® - Ensuring fundamental safeguards related to health, safety and human security
It took two years of preparation, but we did it! We’re proud to say that we are meeting international support standards for disabled people. This accreditation has given the wider team confidence in how we deliver support services. Even so we can’t rest, because there are always opportunities to improve what we do. To maintain our accreditation we must improve constantly, and regularly report our improvements to CQL.

For people supported and their whānau/families, we hope this accreditation offers you confidence in what we do even as we strive to improve. We know that through continuing to improve the quality of our service we will improve outcomes for the people we support.
