ISN is a private mobile service which has commenced in Christchurch and North Canterbury. The service is MOBILE, specialising in SUPPORT and ADVOCACY to all ages.
The MOBILE service is the first of its kind in Christchurch and New Zealand, and was founded by Ray Beal (photos) who has a vast experience in problem solving through networking and advocating for individuals. (Diploma Social Services, Police Diploma).
ISN is an ideal “service provider” for individuals of any age seeking support and/or advocacy for life events that have become overwhelming or difficult for them. Family members have engaged ISN to support loved ones. Social services and other professionals who are concerned about their client or any individual can contact ISN or alternatively encourage the individual to text ISN 022 3579489, or leave a message on (03) 388-0475.
Once an individual contacts ISN and leaves their name and phone number, a mobile representative will contact the caller and, if desired, arrange a home visit without obligation. Alternatively, the individual can nominate a meeting place for the representative.
