Inaccessible Offices - Allyson’s Story

I live in Ponsonby where many of the buildings don’t have lifts.

I have always struggled with stairs, particularly steep staircases.

I have even had to change my dentist as I can no longer access his office which is up a flight of stairs.

 

I believe accessibility legislation would make it a requirement that dentists, doctors, counsellors and similar professionals must have fully accessible office premises.

 

This is my access story, it is one of many. I'm sharing it because I want a law that puts accessibility at the heart of an inclusive Aotearoa New Zealand.
