Who are we?

Our focus is to support, engage and empower youth with disabilities 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 are friendly, knowledgeable and experienced in walking alongside young people with disabilities, while encouraging and supporting them on their personal journey of building a meaningful life in which they are independent, fulfilled and thriving.

At YES, we work closely with Ministers, Government officials and organisations within the youth and disability sectors, enabling us to provide our members with high level of support and information tailored to their individual needs. 

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

All of our projects and programmes are co-designed and co-delivered with youth leaders within the disability sector, to ensure we are creating the right environment for them and their peers to develop personally and professionally.
