About us

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.

Vision and Values

Our vision is a society where disabled people are working, participating and fulfilling their aspirations in inclusive communities.
Our mission is to support our members as we work together to create an inclusive Aotearoa.
We value:
• inclusion and diversity
• working together, in a collegial environment, based on integrity, respect and trust
• ongoing learning and the shared knowledge and wisdom of our community
• pro-active service delivery based on finding the best option for individuals
• we value and encourage innovation
• we value and recognise the autonomy/self-determination of individuals and member organisations
