AIM was initially based at 3/27 Glenmore Drive, Warkworth but later moved to its current premises at 16 Auckland Road, Warkworth, which it leases from the Rodney Health Charitable Trust.
AIM operates four days a week throughout the year and provides services to adults from the Rodney District who attend each week.
Each participant has their own Life Goals Plan, which contains elements of their individual goals, as well as community participation opportunities.
The Programme Manager is appointed by the Executive Committee and is responsible for organizing the day to day operations, within the guidelines set down by the committee.
AIM's mentoring programme supports participants to plan their own life goals, to increase their self-esteem, to develop greater independence, and to explore vocational opportunities for roles within their local community,.
Regular attendance at AIM also gives some families respite from full-time care-giving.
AIM also looks at ways to raise awareness about disability issues in the wider community, and helps to promote a more inclusive, accepting society.
A newsletter is sent out regularly to all members and highlights the various activities that participants take part in. Many of these activities are outside of the AIM premises.
AIM provides a vocational service for adults with physical and/or intellectual disabilities.
Our services are geared to support individual needs and goals, with a focus on mentoring individuals while they continue to develop their life, social, numeracy and literacy skills.
Our main focus is to source meaningful community participation opportunities, and/or local work experience where possible.
