Disabled Employment New Zealand

Many highly capable New Zealanders could be part of the workforce if barriers to their employment were removed. 74% of disabled people want to work. This website will help remove barriers.

Information to help break down barriers to employment for employers and disabled people wanting to enter the workforce. Disabled people are less likely to be employed than the general population or other minorities. Employment for disabled people is often limited by opportunity and employers attitudes rather than disability.


Mobility Parking in New Zealand

Disability Advisory Group New Zealand

Mobility parking permit holders can use mobility parking spaces, which are wider than standard parks and closer to venues. These spaces are marked with the disability symbol and in many areas are now painted blue.

The permit also allows the permit holder to park in some regular parking spaces for longer than the designated time. This varies depending on where in New Zealand the permit holder lives.

There are clear criteria on who is eligible for a permit and permit holder’s responsibilities. This ensures that mobility parking spaces are available for people who really need them.

Who manages the scheme?

The mobility parking permit scheme provides permits for over 130,000 Kiwis. It is managed in partnership with a number of groups.

  • CCS Disability Action manages and issues permits and advocates to improve public attitudes to mobility issues.
  • Doctors or GPs assess people to determine their eligibility.
  • Local councils provide and monitor on-road parking spaces.
  • New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) manages the legislation around parking requirements and fines
