Support Accessibility Legislation
The Access Matters Aotearoa Trust leads a social change campaign in Aotearoa New Zealand advocating for all areas of public life to be accessible to everyone, regardless of access needs. Our movement has thousands of committed campaigners, supporting organisations and business champions.
Unlocking the full potential of every New Zealander should be a given. Yet for a quarter of our population basic activities are a daily struggle, due to access barriers.
Our vision is for every Kiwi to fully participate in society. This means having the opportunity to learn, get a job, and to take part in community and social life.
Existing laws fall short, leaving organisations well-intentioned but without guidance when it comes to creating true accessibility. We propose a game-changing solution: legislation with accessibility standards, implementation frameworks, and a clear pathway for addressing barriers.
It's not just about doing what's right; it's about doing what's smart. An accessible society benefits everyone. Join us in making Aotearoa New Zealand more inclusive.
Support accessibility legislation - it's a necessity, it's a strategic move, and it's time to act.
