The Centre was created by Taranaki people for Taranaki people. All of our activities are underpinned by our values of:
We are proud that our Principles reflect and endorse the Vision and Principles of Enabling Good Lives.
The TDICT core Principles are:
- Beginning early
- Ordinary life outcomes
- Mainstream first
- Mana enhancing
- Easy to use
- Relationship building
At TDICT Centre, we are proud of our commitment to embedding tikanga maori within our service provision.
We believe that all people accessing our services and TDICT staff working within our services, should feel culturally safe and respected at all times.
TDICT staff members we work with a number of different organisations which support the diverse cultures within the Taranaki region. We aim to deliver our services in a way that respects and values disabled people of all cultures.
Being able to communicate and be understood is very important and TDICT Centre is committed to providing information about NZ Sign Language, Easy Read, and other communication supports.
