Nau mai! Haere mai! Welcome to the Manawatu Stewart Centre Website!
Providing positive community-based rehabilitation in partnership with people who have acquired brain injury
Please Note: The New Zealand Stewart Centres, including Manawatu, are in the process of rebranding.
Our new brand will be 'Strive Rehabilitation - Manawatu'.
The word 'Strive' has some rich meaning which aligns well with our rehabilitation philosophy:
We will have a full brand launch shortly, so watch this space! ....
The Manawatu Stewart Centre is audited by Health Audit NZ against two standards:
A Stewart Centre was first established in Auckland by Alex and Mary Stewart in 1991 after their son, Tommy's accident in Australia.
In Palmerston North, the Stewart Centre operated for two years under the umbrella of the Brain Injury Association Central Districts (BIACD)
The Manawatu Stewart Centre Trust (MSCT) was established as a separate entity in January 2001, with Board members from BIACD and the Palmerston North community.
The Manawatu Stewart Centre has contact time and rehabilitation programmes 5 days a week 9am to 3pm
The Referral process can be through an ACC Service Coordinator, Enable NASC, Key Worker of any Support Agency, GP, Health Professional or family.
