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

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.

The key points of every workshop will be sent out so the rest of New Zealand can see what is being talked about.

They will be available in Easy Read, NZ Sign Language, Braille, Te Reo Māori and audio file.
