Abstract: Framework Trust has evolved an innovative, dynamic and responsive way of developing community based services in partnership with mental health consumers. At the core of all services is the notion of consumer empowerment. Our services have been driven by clearly established needs identified by mental health consumers with a simple message that choice, opportunity and flexibility are keystones to successful service development. These ingredients are essential components to our small locality based services offering choices between social and development activity, work skills employment, Accommodation and work co-operative endeavour. Description of Facility/Organisation: Framework Trust is a Charitable Trust which offers a diverse range of psychosocial opportunities in the North, South and Central Regions of Auckland. The organisation serves over 400 individuals with Mental Health concerns in 16 different locations, offering programmes ranging from Employment Development and Work Co-operatives through to Accommodation Activity and Social and development Centres.
