Inclusive NZ
A network for change

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’.

Who We Are

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 50 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.

Our Story

Inclusive NZ has come a long way since its humble beginnings back in 1982 when it was originally known as the NZ Federation of Sheltered Workshops and had 10 members. Much like anything though, this name reflected the social, political and disability sector landscape of its day.
