Inclusive Faith Project hui around the country

What if everyone is included in their chosen faith community? What would that mean for disabled people? What would that mean for faith communities?

The Office for Disability Issues has been partnering with the Human Rights Commission, Inclusive Aotearoa Collective, Yes Disability, the Religious Diversity Centre and others to help answer these questions. 

The Inclusive Faith Project wants to hear from you now – they are co-designing a strategy to achieve the full participation of disabled persons in the life and practice of their faith communities for mutual benefit of all.

A series of regional gatherings are happening to bring disabled people into conversation with faith influencers and leaders so that opportunities are fully explored. 

Practical outcomes will include resources for further engagement wherever a disabled person of faith lives. The process itself will enrich participants’ understanding of disability issues and interfaith relationships.

This is a co-design gathering that will contribute toward the eventual resource that will be practical and flexible for use in all places and situations.
