Inclusive NZ Membership

Inclusive NZ membership is open to organisations and individuals that have an objective to assist people with disabilities. There are many benefits of becoming an Inclusive NZ member and means you or your organisation will have access to a great deal of support as well as resources.

Provides members with a joint voice to Government and fund holders

  • Inclusive NZ has a CEO and office based in Wellington, and a Board committed to ensuring government hears and understands disability support service issues.

  • Members meet no less than three times per year. As well as discussing organisational matters there are guest speakers on topical issues, workshops, opportunities to share ideas and problems, visits to member organisations’ workplaces, and national conferences.
  • We run regular seminars, e.g. for Boards of Trustees on governance and management issues, leadership development courses, etc.
