Council aims to support our community to be more inclusive of those living with a disability or impairment.
Through supporting local and valley wide initiatives, programmes and steering groups, and by creating our own resources such as the DIScover programme (a programme aimed at supporting customer service staff to be more inclusive) we aim to encourage people both in the community and workplace to gain a better understanding towards disability.
DIScover: Serving customers with disabilities
DIScover is an Upper Hutt City Council resource developed with the support of Pam MacNeill Consulting, to support and encourage social change. It provides staff working in customer service roles with guidance on how to provide excellent service to people with disabilities.

Both groups are made up of disability services, local and regional government and members of the community living with a disability.
The My Life My Way Transport group will be hosting a ‘Have a go day’ event on 9 September 2017. Watch this space, more information coming soon!
Upper Hutt City Council also align with the National Disability Strategy.
