Disabilities

Waimakariri Access Group

Ten years ago a number of locals, concerned about the needs of those with mobility issues, met to form a group to run events to highlight these needs. The promotions were run in all main centres under the name 'Wheel Show Em'. These events caused a number of changes to be made by both the Council and local businesses. Since then the group has become more formalised and is now an advisory group to the Council.

Membership of the Waimakariri Access Group is made up of:

  • Royal Foundation of the Blind
  • Disabled Persons Assembly
  • CCS Disability Action
  • Waimakariri District Council
  • Rest home representatives
  • Concerned and interested members of the public.
