Future of DSS

The long-awaited answer to the question of where disability support services will sit, is about to be answered.  Within Ministry of Health, or Ministry of Social Development, or somewhere else?

The Minister for Disability Issues, Carmel Sepuloni and the Minister of Health, Andrew Little are announcing significant changes to the disability system at 2pm on Friday 29 October.

Presented in NZSL and with live captioning, the announcement will be hosted by Attitude TV’s Dan Buckingham. Following the announcement, there will be a panel discussion with members of the disabled community.

You can watch this live at 2pm on Friday or catch it on demand, at http://www.attitudelive.com.  There will also be information online at www.msd.govt.nz NZDSN will be joining the announcement and will provide update information to members later in the afternoon, along with any issues we are seeking answers to, including those you may wish to raise.
