The Ministry is interested in considering Proposals from Respondents with the capacity to provide a national capability and capacity work programme in eleven regions.
The cross-government disability support system supports disabled people to overcome the barriers created by society. The cross-government disability support system includes support funded through the Ministry of Health (Disability Support Services and DHBs), Ministry of Social Development (e.g. the disability allowance, income support, employment support, community participation, social housing), Ministry of Education (e.g. learning support), Oranga Tamariki (e.g. disabled children in care), ACC, and the Ministry for Transport (e.g. the total mobility scheme).
There are about 33,000 people receiving Disability Support Services (DSS) in New Zealand. This includes children, young people and adults with physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities and/or high and complex needs that arise before they turn 65 years and who need ongoing assistance. The ongoing support averages about $30,000 per person per year but ranges from less than $100 to more than $500,000 a year.
Disabled people experience poorer outcomes in a range of areas (e.g. health status, education, employment, income and housing). Māori and Pacific peoples experience a disproportionate level of disability than the general population. Māori and Pacific peoples are also less likely to know about and access the disability support system.
