Get to know Whaikaha - Ministry of Disabled People, our role in Government and our commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
Have your say
One in four New Zealanders identifies as disabled. That's a lot of lives we can make a difference in.
We want the voices of our disabled community to have a true part in shaping the future. If you are a disabled person, family/whānau member, friend or supporter, have your say.
More choices, more control over the life you want to lead. We're working with the disabled community to deliver change and give you more decision-making control around the support you receive.
What's happening in our community
Whaikaha announces the organisations who have successfully applied for funding to support disability leadership through community-led initiatives.
We look at what a recent Ministry of Education report on understanding student wellbeing tells us about the experiences of disabled students in their education settings.
