Chinese Parents Support Service Trust: Think Differently about Disability

The Chinese Parents Support Service Trust is asking the Chinese community to Think Differently about disability.
“The Unlimited Love” is the title of the campaign to change attitudes and behaviour that limit opportunities for disabled Chinese people in Auckland.
The campaign is funded through the Ministry of Social Development, Social Campaigns Team Family and Community Services.
The campaign will utilise Chinese media, such as Chinese Voice Radio AM936, Skykiwi (most popular Chinese website in New Zealand) and Chinese Herald (newspaper) to introduce a series of local and national disability services. These include, Autism NZ Inc, Blind Foundation, Deaf Radio, Circability, Elevate Christian Disability Trust, Mental Health Foundation’s Kai Xin Xing Dong project, Independent Living Services and many more. Beside that, Philip Patston and Dr. Huhana Hickey also shared their inspiration about their work in the disability sector.
Eva the CEO of CPSST hopes by introducing disability services Chinese people can gain an understanding of the services available for them.
“We hope for more dialogue among the Chinese community about disability by introducing the disability services.”
According to The New Zealand Disability Strategy One in five people, in New Zealand report having a long-term impairment.
The Unlimited Love has been running on every Saturday for 13 weeks on AM 936 from 10am to 11am.
