Wider Journey Report ready for Consultation

This is a link to the Human Rights Commission’s Wider Journey report.

This paper aims to provide information about  accessibility for disabled people and invites feedback on these issues.

The paper focuses on accessibility in three areas: the built environment, access to information and independent voting in Aotearoa.

The Wider Journey is part of the Commission’s work on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (the Disability Convention).

The report will help to inform the Government of its responsibilities and will also form part of the Commission’s independent report to the United Nations.

The consultation closes at the end of March 2012 and the Commission would appreciate your feedback on this draft paper.

Please get in touch if you need any further information.
