Call for submissions to the CRPD monitoring report

Don’t miss your chance to feed back on how well New Zealand is doing with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

You can find the details of the convention on the UN website.

Individual submissions are requested from New Zealanders with disabilities, detailing their experiences in six key areas. The monitoring report will be collated and then submitted to the New Zealand Government. 

The areas for feedback are:

  • Social inclusion
  • Health
  • Work
  • The way disability support services are run
  • Barriers to making complaints
  • Lack of disability awareness

Submissions can be about any or all of the six areas listed above. It is an open process, so that contributors can write from their own experiences.

If you would like to make your submission via an online survey, you can find it on survey monkey. This survey is accessible to screenreaders.

There are several other ways to get your submission to the Project Coordinator:

Email pmacneillconsulting@gmail.com

Pam MacNeill
