Who we are
Inclusive NZ is a federation of organisations and individuals involved in the provision of employment and community support services for all.
Our ultimate vision is for New Zealand to become '100 percent inclusive and accessible to all'.
Supporting members is our main priority, and we work hard to make sure that they have the resources, information and networks they need to provide the best services and supports for disabled people.
Currently we support 70 Inclusive NZ members from all over the country. We are always happy to welcome new members to the fold, so if you are interested in working alongside us, see the Membership Section of our website to find out more.
What we do
At Inclusive NZ engaging in activities that benefit our members is what we are all about.
We have a strong belief that our goal of inclusive communities cannot be achieved without active engagement with both the disability sector and wider community sector. We work with government agencies, disabled people’s organisations, the business sector and other NGOs, and represent our members on a number of advisory groups and networks.
Access to opportunities for learning and information is important to our members. Inclusive NZ has a culture of collegial support and we offer regular opportunities for networking and learning through our Forums and conferences. Professional development is supported through the Training Fund and our members are kept up-to-date through our newsletters and social media platforms.
