Transport & Disability Workshops

May 7, 2021 | Advocacy, Event, Life with MS, Research, Support, Uncategorised

MRCagney, together with the Disabled Persons Assembly, is conducting research on behalf of Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency, titled “Understanding the transport experiences of disabled people, determining what barriers exist for people wanting to use Total Mobility and exploring new opportunities”.

This work involves collecting transport experiences from disabled people from all around New Zealand. For this work, they are running a series of workshops for disabled people to share their experiences with the transport system. These workshops will be held around the country over the next month and they would love for you to join them. You can find a list of the available workshops below, with links to register.

Workshop participants will be offered a $20 Koha for participating, this will be provided in the form of vouchers. If you require financial assistance with transport costs to attend the workshop, please get in touch with Paul Brown.

If you have any questions about the workshop or this project, please contact Paul Brown from the Disabled Persons Assembly on paul.brown@dpa.org.nz
