Disability Strategy - One Inclusive Level of Service For All
ParaFed Taranaki was one of 13 parties who signed the Taranaki Disability Coalition Partnership.
On 3 December 2012, Turiana Turia was present for the Official Signing, which took place at the New Plymouth District Council Building. As Turiana stated in her speech, " It is critical in today’s challenging times for communities and organisations to work together". To read Turiana's speech, click here.
The New Plymouth District Council have also created an awesome summary of this strategy.
You can either read the summary, listen to the summary (6MB mp3) or watch a sign-language video of the summary. For more details, go to NPDC - Disability Strategy page.
