Pasifika Church Disability Toolkit

At the Pacific Disability Forum Region Conference  on 5 April Tariana Turia, New Zealand Minister of Disability Issues, used the Pasifika Church Disability Toolkit as an  example of an initiative that helps to achieve needed changes with regard to the care of  people with disabilities.

The Pasifika Church Disability Toolkit is a resource which provides nourishment to the roots of the tree by broadening the awareness and understanding of disability issues within Pacific church communities.

The Disability ToolkIt provides Pacific churches with

  • Information on how to best communicate with Pacific disabled peoples in their church community in order to include Pacific disabled peoples in church services, events and activities.
  • Information on disability support services for Pacific church people to use and access.
  • Helpful and practical suggestions on how church parishioners can positively respond to the needs of Pacific disabled peoples in their communities.
