Save Disability Law
Save Disability Law
The Ministry of Justice is proposing to withdraw funding for direct specialist legal services for the disability community from June 2013.
This will mean that there will no longer be a community law centre specialising in the complex legal needs of disabled people. There will be no Auckland Disability Law.
Auckland Disability Law is calling for the Ministry of Justice to rethink this proposal.
We think there should be specialist disability law services available to disabled people throughout New Zealand, including Auckland Disability Law.
