1.1 million or 24 per cent of people in New Zealand identify as being disabled. This represents almost a quarter of New Zealand’s population and translates, in Lower Hutt, to 24,480 people living with disabilities.
People aged 65 or over are more likely to be disabled (59 per cent) than adults under 65 years (21 per cent) or children under 15 years (11 per cent) and Māori and Pacific people have higher-than-average disability rates.
Council works actively within the disability sector to advance the rights and aspirations of disabled people and to develop the Accessibility and Inclusiveness Plan 2017-2027.
This Plan outlines the goals and key performance indicators that Council and the disability community will focus on achieving over the next ten years.
