Disability Action Plan feedback workshops, Christchurch, 26 November 2018

You are invited to participate in the Disability Action Plan feedback workshops, to be held in the Christchurch region on Monday 26th of November 2018. These workshops, which build on the regional meetings held by the Minister for Disability Issues Hon Carmel Sepuloni earlier in 2018, are one of a series to be held around the country.  We will soon be launching an online forum for people to contribute their feedback.
