The disability advisory group works with council to help make Tauranga accessible to everyone. The group was established in March 2014.
We want to make sure that as Tauranga grows, the perspective and views of disabled people help to shape our city's inclusive future.
This is your opportunity to consult and advise council on a range of issues related to equity, inclusion and barrier-free.
We are looking for individuals with lived or worked experience of disability from diverse backgrounds who want to be, or are leaders and advocates in our growing city.
Being part of the group means you’ll be required to attend a two-hour meeting every six weeks.
If you think this is you or you can make a difference in how our city grows, register your interest before 21 February 2020 by emailing email@example.com
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.
