EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre
Community services to support disabled and ageing populations
Enable New Zealand’s flagship EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre provides services for people who need support to live independently and engage in community activities.
These services are captured in our brand known as EASIE Living: Equipment, Advice, Services, Information, and Education.
The EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre is located at 585 Main Street, Palmerston North. It comprises:
- a disability information service (in-house and mobile)
- a retail store
- a conference room
- an accessible show home, and
- a learning and demonstration space.
A new approach
Launched in February 2016, the EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre is the first of its kind for New Zealand. This innovative approach to providing services is made possible only by leveraging off our expertise, knowledge, and sector linkages.
In May 2016, we won the New Zealand Federation of Disability Information Centres’ ‘Centre of the Year’ for our EASIE Living & Demonstration Centre.
We continue to receive tremendous support from the local community. In 2017/2018, around 11,200 people used our services.
