The New Zealand Disability Support Network (NZDSN) is an incorporated society of members, represented by a Board of Governance.
NZDSN was formed in 2010 and is a network of not-for-profit organisations and some for-profit NGOs that provide support services to disabled people, mainly through contracts with government.
As an Australasian peak body in intellectual disability, ASID promotes research to inform and influence good practice and policy to achieve a society where people with intellectual disability are afforded the same rights and opportunities as all citizens.
