The Government of New Zealand is looking at making big changes to the disability support system. موقع العرب

The long name for this is system transformation.

The Government has said it will plan the changes to the disability support system together with:

  • disabled people
  • family /  whānau
  • disability support services.


Working together like this is called co-design.

A co-design group has been put together.

The co-design group will work together over 9 workshops. سلوتس اون لاين
