Disabled Employment New Zealand
Disability Employment New Zealand
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.
Although one in five working age people in New Zealand have some form of disability, most have little or no barrier to working in some kind of paid employment given the right support. 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.
Seizure Support Northland
Haere Mai. We’re a friendly registered charity ((CC46206) based in Northland, New Zealand who work together to support people living with seizures and epilepsy. We’re here to help when things are tough, to celebrate when things are good and to make sure that no one living with seizures or epilepsy should ever feel alone. Whether you or a family member has had one seizure or are diagnosed with epilepsy, we are here for you.
Disability Advisory Group needs more committee members we need some community members to advice on issues affecting seizure sufferers, the position requires committee members to interact with their local councils and Government and to provide polite but firm advise to councils, our online group wants to supplement traditional Council Disability Advisory Groups. We want to give our advise directly to councils and Government as well as to the council disability advisory groups.
We want to allow the public to take part, I have great concerns about the current council model of having closed disability advisory groups, this allows councils the chance to manipulate people into accepting minimal outcome which may endanger the disabled community while saving council a few dollars
Seizure sufferers advocate wanted, please contact me to join our online Disability Advisory Group.
