What We Offer

Who We Are

We offer information, advice, planning support, mentoring and events for disabled people, families and organisations.

Local Area Coordination

Local Area Coordination (LAC) is a practical, community-based approach to working with disabled people and their whānau.

Research

At the heart of ImagineBetter’s work is a strong belief in the need to think differently about disability, belonging and community. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to support disabled people and their families to live a good life of their choosing within their community.

We have a research programme that places the voices and lives of disabled people and their families’ at its centre. ImagineBetter believes hearing from disabled people and their families about issues that are important to them is key to creating more inclusive communities.
