Join the live conversation about disability support services

Approximate reading time: 1 minutes

The Disability Directorate, Ministry of Health, is hosting a livestream conversation with people who access and provide disability support services – and we want you to join us.

We’ve been travelling around Aotearoa meeting with disabled people and their whānau, carers and providers to talk about how we can build a better future together.

We want to share what we’ve heard, talk about our vision for the future, and let you know what we're doing next.

How can you be involved?

Join the conversation by watching the livestream.
