Rangi brings ACC to the party

Posted on July 31, 2019 by Iosis

For any organisation, having a clear set of values that guides how the organisation behaves is important. 

Disabled as the result of a car accident 21 years ago, Steve* received one payment from ACC at the time. Since then, he’s been living with his daughter and extended family. However, his health has declined, and, while he loves his family dearly, it wasn’t the right situation for him. 

Rangi, an Iosis Social Worker, arranged a meeting with ACC and a doctor, who confirmed that Steve’s decline in health was a result of the accident. WINZ have now confirmed that he’s eligible for a full time carer and emergency housing, plus we’ve applied for disability equipment from ACC. 

Steve is now on the path to a better place in his life: where once he was shy and withdrawn, he is now excited and grateful. He has his dignity back. 

* Name changed to protect identity.
