Disability Support Guide
Our long awaited Disability Support Guide is now here! This free guide is designed to help parents and families of children and young people who have been recently diagnosed with a disability. The booklet aims to help families navigate their way throughout the disability sector, and sheds some light on the roles of the various ministries and organisations involved in the sector including Ministries of Health, Education, Social Development, Work & Income, CYFs and Non-Government Organisations. Included is information on some supports which families may be eligible for. There is also information on disability policy and legislation in New Zealand.
The disability sector can be complicated to understand so this over-arching guidebook may be useful to families regardless of the age of their loved one.
