Who are we?

Our focus is to support, engage and empower disabled youth through a range of resources, networks, opportunities and projects, aimed to support the young person’s transition journey, professional development, and overall Hauora. Our Team is friendly, knowledgeable and experienced in walking alongside disabled youth while encouraging and supporting them on their personal journey of building a meaningful life where they are independent, fulfilled and thriving.

YES is also the central access point for information, support and innovation for all disabled people, their families/whanau, support people, health professionals and organisations.
