Sub Regional Disability Strategy 2017-2022
We launched our new strategy in June 2017. You can read the news story about it here and download a copy of the strategy here.
Sub-Regional Disability Advisory Group
A combined disability advisory group was established to ensure people with disabilities have a forum to enable their voices to be heard across the region (Capital & Coast, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa DHBs).
The Sub-Regional Disability Advisory Group will advise the three boards and their board advisory committees on public health matters and disability support, as the three DHBs work in partnership to integrate their services.
As well as membership from across the DHBs, the advisory group has been set up to ensure representation from the Māori and Pacific communities, disability self-advocacy group People First, and other independent organisations.
Members of the Sub-Regional Disability Advisory Group will provide links and liaise with the multiple disability networks in their communities.
They will also oversee the 5-year Implementation Plan, which aims to ensure the sub-region leads the way to improved health outcomes for people who live with a disability.
