Nau mai, Haere mai,

Welcome to this quick and simple survey.

We are about to develop the Waiariki Disability Action Plan. To understand which actions should be included and where the priorities should lie, we need your help.

GOAL: Disabled people live their best life, knowing District Health Boards (all services, not only hospitals) support them as their needs and goals change.

The plan will focus on:
- Providing greater access to services people need
- Improving the health outcomes for all disabled people within the Waiariki region
- Ensuring equity and accessibility to health services for everyone with disabilities, including Māori and Pacifica people
We've come up with the questions – with the help of disabled people and others from the disability sector.

And we are keen to hear from people living with disability.

Please indicate below which category you fall under and you will be taken to the survey questions that apply to you.
