Imagine Better Learning

The disability sector of Aotearoa NZ has gone through significant change over recent decades, which Imagine Better continues to play an important role in. Imagine Better Learning is one of the strategies we use to assist disabled persons, their whānau, allies, and providers to better understand how to keep ‘a good life’ for the individual as their primary purpose.

Our learning programmes aim to:

• Keep abreast of the latest changes

• Identify implications and opportunities

• Gain insight and learn lessons from others, and

• Filtering national and international best practice

These practices are useful as we plan for and work towards, our individual and collective good lives of today and tomorrow. Imagine Better Learning aims to be an active partner in the ongoing change process, whether you are a person with lived experience, a family member, whānau, a close ally or professional. Our mission is to resource you with the principles, strategies, techniques, methods, knowledge and skills that will support your efforts. Each year Imagine Better Learning works with national and international partners. We listen to the sector and work with others to create workshops, training, events, resources and networks that equip participants with practical tools for implementing their good life.

    SEEKING Expressions of Interest

    The New Zealand Disability Support Network (NZDSN) in partnership with the Enabling Good Lives National Leadership group, Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Development, Careerforce and Toitū te Waiora are creating a series of video resources based on the eight principles of Enabling Good Lives.

    The aim of these video resources is to show the principles in action. They will be shared freely across Aotearoa NZ to help others as they work to create good lives.

    The resources will live on for years to come and be used by many people as sources of learning, teaching and inspiration.

    How can you be involved?

    We are seeking disabled people, tāngata whaikaha, whānau whaikaha, agia / kainga, families / whānau who would like to share how the principles of Enabling Good Lives have enabled them to live the life they want.

    We are looking for people from all over Aotearoa NZ, not just those in an official demonstration areas. People who are willing to share how their good life, or aspects of their good life, have been created.

    We would also love to hear from provider agencies about how they have partnered with disabled people, tāngata whaikaha, whānau whaikaha, agia / kainga and families / whānau and how they have integrated the Enabling Good Lives principles into their day to day practice.
