We believe in giving every person with disabilities greater opportunities and more choice and control over their own lives.
Around $4.5b is invested each year in helping achieve this.
We are always striving to do better so we are overhauling the way we provide support. We are putting in place the Enabling Good Lives programme which gives those living with disabilities more control over their lives and the way they interact with the Government. It also provides better support.
National will continue to focus on breaking down barriers to employment by helping employers become disability confident and helping people with disabilities to find work.
Together we are building a country where everyone has an equal opportunity to choose their paths, chase their goals and achieve their potential, and to live fulfilling lives.
