Youth Services

YES is the only disability information service in New Zealand that focuses on disabled youth and learning differences.

All of our projects and programmes have been 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, ultimately allowing them to lead independent, thriving lives.

I.Lead Conference


We are now excited to announce we will be hosting out third conference in Wellington on the 26th and 27th March 2024! Registrations now have closed.

The first I.LEAD Conference took place in September 2019 at Grand Hall, Parliament Building, Wellington.

The Conference provides a safe, stable platform that allows disabled youth to have their voices heard and influence positive change in policy. It is a great opportunity for disabled youth from across New Zealand to come together, connect and share their experiences.

We held our SECOND conference completely virtually on the 21st and 22nd February 2022, and it was a huge success! Our guest speakers included Honourable Carmel Sepuloni, Minister for Disability Issues; Cam Calkoen – Inspirational International Speaker, Paula Tesoriero MNZM – Human Rights Commissioner for Disability Issues and Jade Farrar – Chair of the Enabling Good Lives Committee. 


If you want to hear more, you can sign up to be part of the conference:
