My name is Michael Northcott, and I enjoy through working for the CP Society the ability to be part of a team that assists people with Cerebral Palsy to be able to live better lives, and I think that the Programmes the Society offers makes a real difference to our members.
I have worked for a number of businesses, including organisations in the disability field, prior to joining the team at the CP Society.
For the Cerebral Palsy Society I fulfil many roles including answering many of the incoming calls and queries. In addition I have the Welfare Officer role, and in conjunction with Auckland Transport carry out Total Mobility assessments.
I coordinate a number of projects including the getOnYour Trike programme, purchasing equipment and IT assistance for the office, and at times, for members.
I enjoy swimming, reading, movies, repairing/ building things, and coming up with workable and effective solutions to challenges. I especially enjoy spending quality time with friends, family, and loved ones
