Have you had your say on the Napier Disability Strategy?
The full strategy and the online feedback form are available here
It is available in a number of formats, including NZ Sign Language, Easy Read (pictorial) and plain text. Feedback closes next Friday, 10 May.
Printed copies of the draft strategy can be requested from the Customer Service Centre.
The draft strategy sets out six key focus areas: getting around, getting involved, being included, having fun, being safe, and having work.
People with a disability make up 27% of Napier’s population, and this figure is growing. This strategy also impacts their whanau, caregivers and service providers.
It focuses the provision and delivery of Council’s activities and services.
The draft strategy, a first for Napier, has been developed in collaboration with people with disabilities and the disability sector.
It was developed through a series of workshops and focus groups with our disability community and also with staff from a range of Council departments.
Two key groups from our disability community, the Napier Disability Advisory Group (agencies) and Napier Ability Plus (people with a lived experience of disability) will continue to work with Council as the strategy is finalised.
