HealthCare NZ is proud to support a number of organisations and initiatives that are doing great things in the health, disability and rehabilitation support sector.
2017 Attitude Awards
The Attitude Awards are the national awards that celebrate the achievements of people who live with disability. The aim of the event is to shine a spotlight on the disability sector, and draw attention to the one in four New Zealanders who live with disability.
The Awards celebrate artists, sportsmen and women, people with intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health issues, young and old. They also pay tribute to the employers who work alongside people with disabilities to ensure they are able to contribute their skills to society and live full and satisfying lives.
HealthCare NZ, alongside our specialist organisations NZCare Disability, Solora and Explore Specialist Advice, was proud to sponsor the Spirit of Attitude Award category at the 2017 Awards, won by Geneva Hakaraia-Tino. We look forward to the 2018 Awards.
