Needs assessed disability assessment
Disability support is currently needs assessed. However some people do not qualify for support as they do not have a condition which is defined by Ministry of Health as a disability, such as people with ME/CFS. Please change the definition of disability to be based on need, rather than a diagnosis. This also enables support for people and their families who have disability but no diagnosis yet.
Why the contribution is important
It promotes equity of access to health and support services
