Celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day
Join the Access Matters Campaign

We know that access matters for many disabled people because too many encounter problems doing every day activities and being able to live your lives like everyone else. Accessibility for the people we work with includes:

· Being provided with documents which you can read and/or fill in to get your goods and services.

· Getting accommodations, or changes made, at work or when studying so you can participate like everyone else.

· Being able to enter buildings using your mobility vehicles and equipment.

· Using websites and participating in social media activities like others.

All too often we see people not being able to access these areas of life and more. That is why Auckland Disability Law is an Access Alliance member of the Access Matters Campaign.

Join the Access Matters Campaign by:

· Signing up to the Campaign

· Sharing your Access Story

· Emailing your MP.

For more information on the Access Matters Campaign and Global Accessibility Awareness Day go to ADL Website.
