As part of Disability Pride Week the New Zealand Human Rights Commission are helping raise the voices of disabled New Zealanders by sharing their stories. 1 in 5 Kiwis are living with some kind of disability and their lives are diverse, inspirational and humbling. These are some of their stories.

Want to share your story? If you’d like to share your story please click here and get in touch with us. You can either submit your own story or talk to someone from the Human Rights Commission’s communications team.
