National Pacific Disability Action Plan Talanoa

Le Va is supporting Whaikaha – Ministry of Disabled People in the development of a National Pacific Disability Plan.

National Pacific Disability Action Plan Talanoa

The National Pacific Disability Action Plan, co-developed with the community, will help guide changes to the disability support system and services for Pacific people that Whaikaha manages. By co-developing this plan with the community, we make sure that the Pacific community’s needs and goals guide important changes that understand and appreciate their culture.

On Tuesday 19 March we were privileged to hold our first Talanoa session with community where insights regarding life experiences were shared freely and met with compassion by our Faiva Ora Leadership Group and Le Va team.

Our next Auckland Talanoa is on the 3 April from 6-8:30pm at a location to be advised on the Le Va Facebook account. Kai (food) will be provided.

We would love to extend a warm invitation to Pasifika youth with disabilities, Pasifika people with Autism and their aiga or whānau (family) to share their experiences with us. We want to understand the challenges you and your aiga face, current systems that are working well along with ones that are not, and how we can make the system and sector better.

Here is the link to register for our April Talanoa.
