The Epilepsy Waikato Charitable Trust (EWCT) is an independent, regional epilepsy provider based in Hamilton. We offer a range of services to help to improve the quality of life for those living with epilepsy, and to support families/whanau and other associated community groups directly and indirectly, affected by the condition.
|Parent to Parent is an organisation offering families raising children with disabilities free information on more than 3600 conditions and support. We have 11 branches nationwide helping families get through tough times; empowering them through knowledge and shared experience to think big, have hope and create meaningful everyday lives for the whole family.|
Statement of support and commitment
We support the Access Alliance in the call for robust and enforceable accessibility legislation in New Zealand. We believe all New Zealanders should be able to fully participate, engage with, work for, and use the services of our organisations irrespective of any access needs.
We call on all political parties to show leadership by committing to the introduction of accessibility legislation, as part of their election platform.
We acknowledge that we also need to engage with people with disabilities to make our organisations and services accessible. We commit to initiating or continuing this conversation.
Together, we can create an accessible and inclusive country where people with disabilities or access needs can thrive as citizens and community members.
