Disability

We're working with the Ministry of Health to develop a world where Pasifika people with disabilities can live the lives they choose.

All of our work is guided by the Faiva Ora Leadership Group to ensure a strong Pacific consumer voice throughout Ministry of Health policy and our Le Va projects.

Our current projects are focused on decreasing stigma through the church, increasing access to the right support, and enhancing cultural competency of disability support services. We’ve developed resources, training and tools to support you achieve this too.

Download our #WeAreChurch resources for your church groups and check out more helpful tools below.

•    #WeAreChurch - a suite of posters made by young people with disabilities emphasising how church plays a positive role in their well being.
•    #We Are Church Booklet – meet the young people who developed the #WeAreChurch resources.
