Disabled Employment New Zealand

Many highly capable New Zealanders could be part of the workforce if barriers to their employment were removed. 74% of disabled people want to work. This website will help remove barriers.

Information to help break down barriers to employment for employers and disabled people wanting to enter the workforce. Disabled people are less likely to be employed than the general population or other minorities. Employment for disabled people is often limited by opportunity and employers attitudes rather than disability.

 

CCS Disability Action

CCS Disability Action’s vision is to see every disabled person included in the life of their family and community. As well as providing direct support and advocacy, we have a wider role in shaping society’s attitudes towards people with a disability.

Our Vision Te Puāwaitanga

We have been working with disabled people and their families since 1935 and are now at the forefront of service provision, advocacy and information sharing in the disability sector New Zealand-wide. Our people are professional, innovative, dedicated and knowledgeable. We hold ourselves to the highest possible ethical and professional standards and are known for our partnership approach to support.

We partner with disabled people, their families and whānau to enable them to have choice and control in their lives. We also work with communities, family members, friends, Hapu, Iwi, educators, health, social services, business, employers, councils, Government, community agencies, community groups and the public to identify and remove barriers that prevent people from achieving their goals.

We deliver specific services through our branches located nationwide.  The availability will vary depending on where you live and many have specific eligibility criteria.  We can often offer support that sits ‘outside’ the work that we are funded to deliver. So, get in touch by clicking on your local branch on our website to discuss your specific needs.  Working outside of the box is something we do best!
