#We are church
For Pasifika people living with disabilities, negative stigma can be a significant barrier to accessing community support or leading the life they choose. Breaking down the barriers to access is one of Le Va’s priorities. By fostering positive attitudes we can reduce, and ultimately aim to eliminate, the negative stigma that exists.
PHAB Pasifika, in partnership with Le Va, has launched a suite of resources for Young Pasifika with disabilities, or what PHAB Pasifika refers to as young people with different abilities, emphasising how church plays a positive role in connecting and supporting their wellbeing.
These resources include four vibrant A2 posters featuring young Pasifika people with their messages of inclusion, and a booklet that tells the story behind each of the young people featured in the posters.
Their stories emphasise how churches and congregations can encourage and support people with disabilities – by helping them connect with each other, providing leadership to build confidence in themselves, and empowering them to show their love of Pasifika culture and faith in a meaningful and honest way.
You can read more and download all of our church resources on the Supporting people with disabilities in your church page.
