About Real People

Real People is an innovative support service in Hawke’s Bay that works alongside people under the age of 65 who are living with physical disabilities and degenerative disorders.

Our aim is to help our clients live life to the fullest, and in many cases, this means improving their skills and abilities so that they are able to participate and contribute to their communities in a meaningful way.  Real People has two locations in Taradale, Napier.


Mosaic provides day programmes which encourage active involvement in the Hawke’s Bay community.

These vocational day services cultivate and improve practical and creative skills that help our clients to contribute to their communities. Our programmes are varied and responsive to the needs, interests and aspirations of our students. Our programmes include:

  • Vocational skills such as literacy, numeracy, food management and computer skills
  • Fine arts and craft programmes, including painting, drawing, mixed media work, woodwork, sculpture, jewellery and mosaic

We place emphasis on community participation, which is a part of our course component. Clients will take their skill and work off-site, gaining experience and integrating with people in the local community.


Rowan is a residential care facility for 22 people. We aim to create an atmosphere that promotes a sense of community and responsibility. Staff work alongside clients to support them with every day tasks, assisting them where necessary. Rowan is a fun, nurturing and friendly place to live.
