IRIS

Another name change in Auckland

Nine years ago the Cerebral Palsy Society based in Auckland New Zealand, changed its name to Focus 2000.

It has just (with effect from today, I think) changed its name again, to IRIS (Tirohanga Whanui in Maori).

IRIS (formerly know as Focus 2000) is a not-for-profit social enterprise, that provides a diverse range of community based services to people with a disability, injury or health concern. Today IRIS employs over 1,000 team members and serves over 4,000 people.

Conductive Education is one of IRIS’s five ‘key services’ and, under the new name, will continue to offer offer a variety of programmes for children from under six months of age to ten years:

IRIS is not a school-based service.
