The Waimakariri District Council is one of the largest employers in the Waimakariri District and has become an employer of choice.
Nineteen years ago a number of local people, concerned about the needs of those with mobility issues, met to form a group to highlight these needs. They formed an Incorporated Society and developed a Constitution. Advocacy, education and training are amongst the aims to promote a “barrier free” District.
Events were run in all main centres under the name 'Wheel Show Em'. These promotions which raised awareness about physical and sensory limitations, caused a number of changes to be made by both the Council and local businesses.
The group were also instrumental in Council formulating an Accessibility Strategy (with an action plan) which is reported on to Council. From its early beginnings WAG has become more formalised and now is also an advisory group to the Council.
The Waimakariri Access Group is consumer led with current representation from:
The Acting Chair until the October 2021 AGM is Phil Humphries - Email email@example.com (The current chair is on leave at the moment)
Council staff from a number of Units continue to support the Access Group, ensuring issues identified in relation to Council are followed up, that consultation is undertaken as required and that staff participate in the annual training opportunity. Each Community Board also has a rep on WAG during their elected term.
