Disability responsiveness

Our vision is that disabled people and their families are supported to live the lives they choose. We are committed to increasing disabled people’s choice, control and flexibility regarding the supports they use.

In Southern we work to educate staff, develop and provide resources to create an enabling environment to support people living with a disability or chronic condition.

As a disabled person in New Zealand, what are your rights when you are using health and disability services?

All users of New Zealand's health and disability system have rights. Find out more about your rights as a disabled person in this video below, or from the Health and Disability Commissioner and People First New Zealand Ngā Tāngata Tuatahi
