CCDHB provide the planning and funding functions of disability support services for people aged 65 years and older, who generally experience disabilities due to the increasing complexity of their health needs. Younger people with disabilities who are more likely to have the same health needs as the rest of the population - but may require greater linkages across sectors such as housing, education, transport and vocational support - have disability support services funded by the Ministry of Health.
The 3DHBs announce a Significant plan to improve disability planning policy and services within health across all parts of our health system.
This has been developed in consultaiton with a range of different communities across the five localiites and has involved a collaboration of disabled people, Board members, clincial staff and community providers.
A combined 3DHB disability advisory group has been established to ensure people with disabilities have a forum to enable their voices to be heard across the Wairarapa, Capital & Coast, and Hutt Valley District Health Boards (DHB).

Are you tired of being asked the same health and disability questions by medical staff? If you have disabilities and/or communication issues, completing and carrying your own personal Health Passport with you will provide medical staff with the information they need to support you.
