Supporting oranga for disabled people
We want to work with you on a future Oranga Tamariki disability strategy.
We want to work with disabled people who have lived experience of care and protection and/or youth justice services, and the people who support them.
One of our most important goals is to make services better for all disabled people we work with – that includes disabled tamariki, rangatahi, parents, caregivers and their whānau.
Future disability strategy
Oranga Tamariki needs a clear vision describing the ideal future for disabled people we work with. We also need a strategy, or roadmap, to show us how to get there.
We want to work with you to create an Oranga Tamariki disability strategy. This will give us the opportunity to uphold equal rights for disabled people we work with, especially tangata whaikaha Māori (Māori disabled people).
Group workshop or individual interview
We're partnering with organisations that may already be working with disability communities to host workshops and interviews where you can share your thoughts.
You can find information about participating in an upcoming group workshop, or a one-on-one interview, below.
You can provide your thoughts on a vision in writing or by audio recording if that format works well for you.
More information about this option will be available soon. Register below if you would like to receive a notification when individual submissions open.
