My particular skills are in working with adults with brain, spinal or neurological disabilities.

I am Kerry Harper, and I’m proud to be a Kaitūhono/Connector for Mana Whaikaha - Enabling Good Lives.  

I am born and bred in Central Hawke’s Bay, where I live with my wife of 32 years. We have a small lifestyle block where we enjoy our garden. We have raised three wonderful sons and are now blessed with nine grandchildren. They keep us both busy and very poor.  

I enjoy travelling and have been fortunate over the past few years to be able to do this. Most summer weekends we spend at Kairakau beach, at our caravan.  

I really enjoy being around people and have loved working in the disability sector since 1983. My particular skills and interests are in working with adults with a disability, including:  

  • brain injury rehabilitation, both traumatic and acquired brain injuries 

  • stroke rehabilitation

  • spinal injury  

  • neurological conditions, such as Motor Neurone disease 

  • support with making the transition from residential living to living in the community, including vocational support and support with community participation.  

I have a good sense of humour and believe laughter is crucial to our daily needs. 

Although I live in Central Hawke’s Bay and will be based mainly within the Tararua hub and area, I do travel to Palmerston North regularly. 

If you think I could be of support to you please make contact.
