Join the Co-Production Team.

  • Do you self-identify as tangata whaikaha Māori or a person with lived experience of disability? 

  • Are you aged over 16 years?  

We are currently recruiting a team of disabled people to contribute to phase 3 of this project.

In this phase, 10-12 people with varying lived experiences of disability will partner with the research team to read and interact with published reports and research, and then mix it with their lived experience of disability to develop new knowledge (that will inform policy recommendations).

This work will be done using a mixture of interactive online workshops and activities that can be completed in your own time.

Phase 3 of research is underway and we would like to be completed by September 2024. We anticipate your involvement in this phase of this research could take up to 20 hours of your time.

Koha will be offered to all co-production team members to acknowledge their expertise and time.

This project is funded by the Health Research Council (HRC) Emerging Researcher fund. The study has been approved by the University of Otago Human Ethics Committee (H21/099) 

How was the survey for you?

We would like to talk to some people about their experiences using this online survey tool.


Because this is a new way of gathering disabled people's stories, we would like you to tell us more about what worked and what didn’t work. We want to know what was helpful and what could be improved about this approach.

We are thinking that we will talk to people in online (e.g., via Zoom) - either in groups or individually. But we are also happy to chat in a way that works best for you!
