“I have an emphatic belief that the work BAT does directly impacts on the health and wellbeing of Aotearoa’s growing disabled community. Ensuring and empowering meaningful change for tāngata whaikaha and their whānau.”

Josh Caldwell

Research Assistant and PLEx Network Coordinator


Josh comes to us with 7 years of experience as an inpatient peer support coordinator for people with newly acquired Spinal cord impairments.

With a strong interest in promoting meaningful health and wellbeing outcomes for tāngata whaikaha. Josh uses realist qualitative research to ensure the voices and experiences of disabled people are at the forefront of research and not at the end.

As our PLEx network coordinator and research assistant, Josh brings his own lived experience of disability to the team.

When he isn’t working you can mostly likely find him in the city finding the little treasures and hidden restaurants and cafes or enjoying music with friends over a coffee or a good book.
