The Office for Disability Issues (ODI) will be moving from the Ministry of Social Development to the new Ministry for Disabled People.

This decision was made by Cabinet. Integrating ODI into the new Ministry will help support the new Ministry’s cross-government leadership role. Staff and roles within the Office will not be changing.

There’s still more work to be done on how the Office for Disability Issues will fit into the new Ministry. If you are interested in learning more, you can find a copy of the Cabinet paper, including alternate formats here.
