Disability information advisory services
Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury

The disability information advisory services (DIAS) is focused on providing independent information and advice to Pacific peoples with disabilities, their families, caregivers, providers, and the general public. This information and advice may include:

  • what disability support services are available, and how to access them

  • how to find support and advocacy groups

  • how to navigate the different disability services, and

  • information related to a specific disability.

Most of our DIAS coordinators have “lived experience” of disability – as service users or carers/support people.

How to access this service

This service is free and available to everyone. For information and advice, please contact Vaka Tautua on 0800 825 282 and you will be directed to the DIAS team closest to you.
