Welcome To Good Lives Wairarapa

Growing a thriving and connected disabled community

Good Lives Wairarapa is a collective of Wairarapa-based disabled people and their families. We aim to improve services and long-term life outcomes for disabled people in our region. We embrace the principles of Enabling Good Lives: self-determination, beginning early, person-centred, ordinary life outcomes, mainstream first, mana enhancing and relationship building.

We seek to ensure that disabled people in our community have adequate funding and support to live meaningful lives of their own choosing and be valued members of their community.
