Disability Advisory Group New Zealand

Disability Advisory Group NZ

Are you affected by some type of disability, do you feel that your Government and councils do not listen to your concerns.

What about parking do you avoid busy places because you can not get a car park? Should the disabled be forced to use parking ticket machines that are not accessible?

Do uneven surfaces and broken footpaths make moving about difficult.

We want our Government and councils to listen. This website has links to contact your council DAG or use our Facebook page to make your concerns public.

Disability Advisory NZ is a more open group than local councils run. Disability Advisory Group NZ on Web and Facebook

Lifts in new buildings 2018

Lifts in new buildings Written 14-04-2018

Do small wheelchair ramps or small lifts keep you downstairs, they do me, I have a lot to say on this issue, because I think in a 2018 kind of way, lifts and ramps are getting smaller at the time electric battery operated vehicles whether they are cars, wheelchair or mobility scooters are becoming more common, electric transport is here

This page will be about accessibility of both lifts and wheelchair ramps, seems both are getting smaller. I am a mobility Scooter user I can walk but only a small distance, I suffer great pain when walking, I am totally reliant on a walking stick and cannot walk at all without my walking stick, I also have breathing problems because I have a reconstructed windpipe

For this reason when out and about I use a mobility scooter, now at home I do not need a wheelchair because home is small and safe, but walking is difficult and dangerous because I do have falls, so to get out and about I use a mobility scooter

My mobility scooter is not much bigger than an electric wheelchair, no wider but about 30 cm longer than a wheelchair. Most big shops and many venues are mobility scooter accessible, but often ramps and lifts are not.

A really good example of this is my local library, I love to read and research The main library here in Whangarei is about nine years old
