Think Differently is a social change campaign to encourage and support a fundamental shift in attitudes and behaviour towards disabled people. It’s about focusing on what people can do rather than what they can’t. We’re doing this through work with disabled people’s organisations, and linking up with employers, educators, businesses, families, whānau, and influencers.
“Improving attitudes and behaviours towards disabled people will ensure that people can live their lives in a way which enables them to be the best that they can be - rather than being constrained by the judgements of others.”
