Disability Support

Council aims to support our community to be more inclusive of those living with a disability or impairment.

Through supporting local and valley wide initiatives, programmes and steering groups, and by creating our own resources such as the Enhancing Accessibility programme, we aim to encourage people both in the community and workplace to gain a better understanding towards disability.

Enhancing Accessibility

This Upper Hutt City Council resource was developed with the support of Pam MacNeill Consulting, to support and encourage social change, equality and accessibility in the costumer service sector. It provides staff with guidance on how to provide excellent service to people with disabilities.

My Life My Way

Upper Hutt City Council is a member of My Life My Way Steering and working group. These groups aim to identify and find solutions for disability issues in the Hutt Valley. Both groups are made up of disability services, local and regional government representatives, and members of the community living with a disability.

 

Upper Hutt City Council also aligns with the National Disability Strategy.
