Stronger together


Led by our community, for our community.

Our Mission

Our conference embodies unity with the theme “stronger together.” The development of this event has been driven by disabled leaders and young people passionate about fostering connections in the community across many demographics. Our aim in this conference is to cultivate leadership skills, boost confidence, encourage collaboration, and develop new and long standing partnerships, mentoring, and to support new initiatives. 

‘Alone we get so far, together we get so much further’.  

The future is bright, but it’s even brighter when it’s built with collaboration, connection and community. 

Disabled persons, family, whanau, and allies. How do we come together strategically, and in partnership to think outside of the box? To work together for the greater good of our community. 

“Nau te rourou, naku te rourou, ka ora te manuhiri.” – This means with your food basket and my food basket, the people will thrive.


Promote a culture valuing community, connection, and leadership.


Ensure all voices are heard and valued.


Highlight and learn from others achievements and possibilities.


Foster relationships, self care, and mentorship for disabled persons, youth and whanau.
