About the Event

Morning Gathering
Tuesday November 13, 2018
9am – 11am
The Orchard, 20 MacLoughlin Drive, Te Puke

We are excited to host two events with Anne Wilkinson – Parent; former CEO of Parent to Parent NZ; member of the National EGL Leadership group; member of the Waikato EGL Leadership group.

Anne will offer insights into the ‘new system’ with a particular focus on the role of family / whanau leadership and some ideas on how we can prepare for the new era.

There is no cost but your RSVP would be appreciated.

The Disability System in Aotearoa NZ is in a process of transformation. Disabled people, family/whanau, providers and officials are all currently involved in what is called the Mid Central Prototype – you can learn more about this by visiting the Enabling Good Lives Website.

It is envisaged that the Western and Eastern Bay of Plenty and Lakes regions will be in phase two of the National roll-out, either towards the end of 2020 or early 2021. An important aspect of this new system is the active involvement of families / whanau at all stages of the process including ongoing leadership and governance.

These first two sessions will both be held in the Western Bay of Plenty, however, we are committed to also holding sessions in the Eastern Bay and Lakes regions if there is demand.

Please register your interest in attending one of the advertised November events. Alternatively, please register your interest for an event in your region.
