Living My Life

An ACC Funded Service

Options uses a Person-Centred approach. By listening carefully and respectfully to your story we support you to make informed choices about how you want to live your life.

A Person-Centred Approach is a way to help us find out what is important to you, what works and doesn’t work for you, and how we can support you to achieve positive outcomes.
