IHC was founded in 1949 by a small group of par­ents who wanted equal treat­ment from the ed­u­ca­tion and health sys­tems for their chil­dren with in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­i­ties.

The IHC of to­day is still striv­ing for these same rights and is com­mit­ted to prin­ci­ples of ad­vo­cat­ing for the rights, wel­fare and in­clu­sion of all peo­ple with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity.

It has more than 5500 staff work­ing to sup­port 7000 peo­ple in ser­vices that in­clude res­i­den­tial care, sup­ported liv­ing, vo­ca­tional sup­port, respite care, and New Zealand’s largest non­govern­ment so­cial hous­ing provider.
