The New Zealand Disability Strategy will guide the work of government agencies on disability issues from 2016 to 2026.
It can also be used by any individual or organisation who wants to learn more about, and make the best decisions on, things that are important to disabled people.
The vision of the New Zealand Disability Strategy is:
New Zealand is a non-disabling society - a place where disabled people have an equal opportunity to achieve their goals and aspirations, and all of New Zealand works together to make this happen.
A range of other initiatives are being carried out to support the goals of the New Zealand Disability Strategy, for example Enabling Good Lives. In this section you can find out more about these initiatives.
