The group tasked with designing a new disability support system has identified a range of key challenges at its latest workshop.  These included challenges around funding, control and choice, to name but a few.  A review of evidence also highlighted a list of what to do and what not to do in designing a new system.

A co-design group, which includes disabled people, those with disabled family members, and representatives from the disability sector, is holding a series of workshops until mid-June to design the new system.

The aim is to provide disabled people and their families more choice and control.

Leading the work is the Ministry of Health’s Sacha O’Dea.
