The Inclusive Faith Project is a co-designed strategy whose objective is the full participation of disabled persons in the life and practice of their faith communities for mutual benefit of all. 

A series of regional gatherings are bringing disabled people into conversation with faith influencers & leaders so that opportunities are fully explored. 

Practical outcomes of this initiative will include resources for further engagement wherever a disabled person of faith lives. The process itself will enrich participants’ understanding of disability issues and interfaith relationships. 

This is a co-design gathering that will contribute toward the eventual resource that will be practical and flexible for use in many places and situations. 

Feel free to send along regional reps and pastoral staff in local congregations.

The NZ Human Rights Commission, Inclusive Aotearoa Collective, Yes Disability, Ministry for Disabled People, Religious Diversity Centre and others are partnering nationally and locally in this multisector multifaith initiative.
