News article

29 September 2017

There are more than 20 working groups which have been formed to work on the detailed design of the transformed disability support system.

At least one third of each working group is made up of disabled people, no more than a third are officials and the balance is from the disability sector including whānau representatives, providers, and academics.

There are still a few working groups looking for disabled people to participate, particularly for interfaces with other government agencies.

Feedback has been received on some of the initial thinking about how people will enter the disability support system from the Co-design group and the National Enabling Good Lives Leadership Group.

The scope of funding working group has met several times and is now ready to test some of its thinking with a broader group.

The new system will be launched in MidCentral on July 1, 2018.

The Ministry of Health’s Sacha O’Dea is working in partnership with the disability sector on System Transformation.
