The aim of the New Zealand Disability Strategy is to remove the barriers that prevent disabled people from participating fully in our communities.
The Strategy identifies 15 objectives covering areas like employment, education, human rights, access to services and information, and leadership – and outlines 113 broad actions to be taken by Government.
Following the launch, the New Zealand Disability Strategy and related information will be available on the website www.nzds.govt.nz.
The Strategy document and the summary of consultation findings will also be available in a variety of formats, including large font, Braille, audio-cassette and an easy-to-read version.
