As part of our engagement with children and young people for our What Makes a Good Life? report, we heard from 474 disabled children and young people through survey and face-to-face engagements.
We heard from disabled children and young people four key insights into what a good life meant for them, and what got in the way of experiencing a good life.
Disabled children and young people told us that:
Acceptance: Discrimination is widely experienced by disabled children and young people
Accessibility: A lack of accessibility gets in the way of the good life
Safety: Unique for all of us
Education: To work better for us, be flexible and supportive
Employment: Job opportunities and being supported is important to us
Whānau: We want support from, and for, friends, families, whānau and communities
