Disability advisory group

The disability advisory group works with council to help make Tauranga accessible to everyone. The group was established in March 2014.

About the group

The group brings a passion and commitment to the rights of disabled people to be fully included and valued in city life. Members come with a diverse range of expertise and experience, and includes those who live with a disability, parents of disabled children, and disability advocates.

The key focus of the group is to undertake an advocacy and monitoring role in relation to the implementation of the Tauranga Disability Strategy. This involves advising council on the development and implementation of policies, projects, planning and service delivery that have an impact on the lives of disabled people.

The strategy talks about Council facilities and events, information, transport and the urban environment being accessible and enjoyed by everyone. The group meets six-weekly, and provides a key leadership and advocacy role to ensure that these outcomes are achieved.
